Vadim Timonov has made what I believe is the 7th ascent of Fred Nicole's Monkey wedding, ~8C, in Rocklands, South Africa.

The very sharp problem was put up as an ~8B+ back in 2002, but since then it's been upgraded. It has been repeated by:

Paul Robinson, Adam Ondra, Daniel Woods, Nacho Sanches and now Vadim Timonov.

This was Vadim's first of the grade and he comments on fb: 

Boom!💥💥💥
Monkey wedding 8C - done! 
Today I did the main project of my trip in Rocklands! I'm very satisfied! Today will be a party!

Nalle just repeated Monkey Wedding, saying it was the 8th ascent of the boulder problem. I have no idea who is missing from your list, though.
