Adam Ondra has flashed Supercrackinette, 9a+, in the Praniania sector at Saint Leger du Ventoux, France. Alex Megos did the first ascent of this Quentin Chastagnier/Laurent Triay route in October 2016.

According to Fanatic climbing the route doesn't have any real crux, just around 25-30 moves of very sustained hard and fingery climbing in a big overhang where the hardest section comes just before linking the direct start into the original Crackinette, and then you have to deal with the awkward 8b+ crack itself.

Hey, nice one on flashing Supercrackinette, congrats! First 9a+ flash?

Thanks :-) Yep, I guess so
