Since early March, he has visited the area three times, resulting in four successful ascents of "8b or harder" routes: Ultra perm, 8b, Omaha Beach, 8b+, Proper Soul, 8b+ (New River Gorge), Transworld Depravity, 8b+, and now, last but not least, Southern smoke, 8c+.
Considering how quickly he is moving through the grades at such a young age, it will be very interesting to see what he can do in the future.
