Chris Sharma has made the first ascent of a problem he has been working on for a while in the Cova de Ocell near Barcelona. Catalan Witness the fitness, should weigh in somewhere around ~8B+/C I guess.

Alberto Rocasolano repite 'Catalan witness the fitness' 8C en Cova de l'Ocell
Chris no dijo que fuera 8C... Anteriormente, en mi opinión, creo que sería 8B+, pero ahora creo que 8C está bien. No sé, el tema también es que es un poco largo –24 movimientos– y algunos lo catalogarían como vía, y quizás sería 9a o 9a+ de vía. Igual se debería inventar un nuevo método de regulación de nivel para este tipo de vía-búlder cada vez más comunes.

NEWSFLASH: Catalan Witness the fitness, ~8C, FLASH by Jakob Schubert
Jakob Schubert has managed to flash Chris Sharma's Catalan Witness the fitness, ~8C, in the Cova del ocell near Barcelona. The problem was originally given ~8C, and as far as I know none of the repeaters has suggested anything less than soft ~8C.

Date of Ascent:

February 03, 2018

Suggested Grade:

8B+

Notes:

5 or 6 sessions

CATALAN WITNESS THE FITNESS
Catalan Witness the Fitness has been confirmed at Font 8C several times, although after Jakob Schubert’s amazing ascent recently, he suggested a downgrade to 8B+. I don’t have the same experience at this level of bouldering as those other guys, but given what I do have, I think I would concur with 8B+.
