Connor Herson repeats the hardest cracks in Squamish with Crack of Destiny (8c), Cobra Crack (8c) or Tainted Love (8b).
Seb Berthe manages the flash ascent of Le Voyage (E10, 7a). The Belgian is the first to succeed James Pearson's route in this style. In addition, he may also be the first climber ever to flash such a difficult trad route.
Siebe Vanhee is currently showing nerves of steel in the Swedish climbing area Bohuslän. On his first day in the area, the Belgian secured only the third repetition of the infamous Savage Horse (9-R/X) line, which was one of the most difficult routes in Scandinavia when it was first climbed in 1999.
James Pearson manages the first ascent of his long-standing Trad project in Annot. Bon Voyage is probably one of the toughest trad routes in the world, and it doesn't need to fear comparisons with Tribe or Lexicon.
