Clay Gordon reports on Insta that he has sent in different days but in one session, two 8B's in Bishop, Spectre and Buttermilker. He also did The Mystery 8A+ and Evilution Direct 8A. Pic from Spectre, © Michael Pang

Clay was 4th at the Youth World Championships in 2016 and four times he has been the national champion in USA.

Since when is V13 news? Fred Nicole put up V14 in 1998 in Hueco. Climbing is moving backwards

It is a nice picture and impressive sends by a 17 year old... but I was not the one who published it :)

Give us a break Jamie - no one cares if teenagers can crank on bad/tiny holds above a pile of mattresses in the first place, it's just strength tricks done on rocks

I hope you're joking, Geo. Spectre's crux move is among the coolest I've ever watched (Dave Graham, long time ago), and it's definitely not just a strength trick, as you dismiss it.

"just strength tricks done on rocks" I agree, I hate when kids train for years to build enough strength to easily climb a stupid boulder. It takes no skill and it is not impressive.
