Nalle Hukkataival has repeated Christian Core's Gioia, ~8C+, at Varazze, Italy.
Nalle's ascent was the third, after Core and Adam Ondra.
Originally given 8C by Core, both he and Adam Ondra has since suggested it's probably more 8C+, but it's too early to say it's confirmed at that grade. Nalle's opinion will of course carry some weight.
Hopefully I can give you a more detailed update soon.
Given the quickness of this repeat, I guess it's safe to say his projects back home in Helsinki must be beyond ridiculously hard.
