Katharina Saurwain and Jorg Verhoeven have had a very successful US-trip climbings heaps of highballs and hard problems. I don't know the exact number of 8A-and-harder Katha has done, but in one single day at Hueco Tanks, she did three.
In this video, also from from Hueco, she climbs two 8A+'s: The very steep Rumble in the jungle and the very tall Barefoot on sacred ground
