18 year old Alexander Megos has made the, as far as I know, first flash ascent of an 8c in Frankenjura. The route was Markus Bock's Raubritter on the short and steep Eldorado wall between Ober- and Untertrubach in the Trubachtal, a crag that is also known for routes like Ekel, Nightmare, Stonelove and Infinity.
Incidently, Adam Pustelnik (see news below) made a 2nd go ascent of the same route 10 years ago when he was 19. At the time he went by the name "The Polish guy with the funky hair".
