At the former, Dan Beall has made the 3rd ascent of Shawn Diamond's Direct North on the Grandma Peabody boulder.
The problem was repeated last year by Guillaume Glairon Mondet from France who confirmed the 8B+ grade. Guillaume also said 'the line was really nice but also very scary as you have a high heel hook very far off the ground.' (see video below).

Meanwhile, Jimmy Webb headed south to Hueco Tanks. I don't know how long he will be staying, but he is obviously in a hurry as he went more or less straight to Esperanza, 8B+, and did it 2nd go after working out the moves. That's a man on form!
