American, Erik Kubiak has opened a new hard route at Washingtons cliffs. The Seam, .14b/8c is an old 130 feet aid line. If anyone thinks 8c just ain´t hard enough, there´s a possible 35 foot extension that´s likely to check in at 8b+… Canadian,Sonnie Trotter had a good summer in Colorado, sending both The Crew, .14b/8c, and the 7pm TV Show, .14a/8b+. As far as I know The Crew was Sonnie´s first 8c, although he has sent at least 10 8b+´s.
