A few days ago Italian 19 year old, Niccolò Ceria repeated Entlinge, ~8B+, and L'ombre du vent sds, ~8B, in the Murgtal, Switzerland. Both problems were first done by Fred Nicole.
Niccolò needed two days to do Entlinge and thought it felt harder than any other 8B he has done and that 8B/+ could be about right.
The problem was originally given 8C and has been flashed by Daniel Woods.
Other problems Niccolò has repeated recently include Radja (new method), Permanent midnight and Steppenwolf, all 8B.
Here's an uncut video of his ascent of Entlinge:
