Charles Albert, aka Barefoot Charles, has repeated Fred Nicole's Monkey Wedding, ~8C, at Roadside in Rocklands. As usual he did it without climbing shoes.

Charles has previously climbed at two to four 8C's, depending on how you choose to look at it.

He has made the first ascents of La Révolutionnaire, ~8C and Délire Onirique has been suggested for l'Alchimiste, but also 8B, and he suggested ~8B+ for his version of Guillaume Glairon-Mondet's Le pied à coulisse (~8C), which is more or less impossible to climb with shoes.
