Shauna Coxsey, Mina Leslie-Wujastyk, Ned Feehaly and David Mason are currently at the Västervik Boulder meet in Sweden.
The weather has been more or less ideal and many ascent have been made. Too many to mention them all actually, but both Shauna and Mina has done at least one 8A each, and Ned and David several, including a flash of Goofhead variant, 8A, by Ned.
The meet continues over the weekend and the weather seems to stay good, so with any luck there will be many more ascents made.
Here is a video of Mina repeating The Office sds, ~8A, at Björnblocket just north of Västervik, Sweden.
