The Singularity finally repeated by Nalle Hukkataival
Really extra tough to comment on the difficulty. The fact that it's fended off the efforts of a list of V15 climbers for over a decade must mean something. Does that suggest V15? Or make it a V14 that's just really hard to do? Is there a difference between those two?

Tim Clifford: Escaping the Quantum Hole
Clifford sent the Room Project, which he named The Singularity (V14) on May 21, eight days before his 40th birthday. I’m not sure if it helped me turn 40, but I suppose it’s nice to be climbing as well as ever. I definitely still feel I can climb harder than this.
