Jimmy Webb has made the 3rd ascent of Chris Webb Parsons' Believe in two, ~8B+, at Magic Wood, Switzerland.
The problem which is just to the right of Steppenwolf, another Magic Wood classic, was originally given 8C and has previously been repeated by Daniel Woods.
It seems Jimmy Webb is now doing to bouldering what Adam Ondra has already done to sport climbing i.e repeating so many hard problems that anything less than 8C barely gets noticed. The fact that he suggests 8B+ for most of the 8C's he repeats only adds to this trend.
Of course it can quite rightly be argued that it's not all about the grades, but then again... we all know it is, don't we?
