Iran hero downgrades 8A+ to 7C

(We will get the name) from Iran has been invited together with one friend to join the Petzl Roc trip in Zillertal. We know he was kind of strong as he had won the Iran Championship the last five year in the row and also done 7C+ and 8b back home.Today, he seemed to be one of the strongest and he did one 8A+ rather fast. With no European grade comparison knowledge what so ever, he thought it was 7C. “Wow, is it really 8A+, I have harder boulders in Iran. I want to be the new climbing hero in the world.”
