Adam Ondra has just had an amazing trip to the Swiss bouldering mecca of Cresciano.
On that trip Ondra managed to flash both Confessions (was graded Font 8B+, Ondra suggested 8B) and Un Ange Avec des Cornes (8A+), as well as climbing The Dagger (Font 8B+), La dispute (8B), Mithril (8B) and the very famous Dreamtime (after the recent breaking of the hold this problem could be Font 8C, although Adam said 8B+).
If the grade of Font 8B+ sticks for Confessions then this is the hardest boulder problem flashed to date.
