8b flash by James Pearson

James Pearson has managed to flash Ganymede takeover, 8B, at Brione, Switzerland. If the grade stays 8B, this is the hardest bouldering flash ever. Ganymede takeover, a Dave Graham-problem, was originally graded 8B+ but has since the FA come down a notch and seems to be settling around 8B. Last summer, James flashed Secret Splendor, initially graded 8B and then downgraded to 8A+. Others who, in the past, have been credited with the first 8B-flash include Chris Sharma, Fred Nicole and James Litz. Source: www.freakclimbing.com
