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.

8 days. 9a/9a+ sport route
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.
In the end, Beto was the first to repeat the whole line two days ago, suggesting 8C for it.

8C soft. Few days
Slovenian strong man Jernej Kruder sent us some footage of him climbing the bouldering test piece 'Catalan Witness The Fitness’ (8c/V15). We caught up with him in Sheffield to find out more.

FLASH! 8B+ soft
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.

5 or 6 sessions
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+.
