Catalan Witness the Fitness 8B+ (C) by Dave MacLeod (39)

Dave Macleod, one of the greatest trad climbers in the world, reports that he has done the eight ascent of Chris Sharma's Catalan Witness the Fitness, giving it a personal grade of 8B+. Including Jakob Schubert's recent flash suggesting low-end 8B+ as well as most guys have said it to be soft 8C and in fact, Sharma not giving it a grade, it might be that the great roof boulder should just be called 8B+ and delete it from the 8C official list? Two years ago, being 37 years old, Dave did Practice of the Wild 8C.

I dont  understand  ,how Sharma  did not  graded this  boulder ,as official video coming  from  sharma  official  website or  other social  media   where   it says  8c?  so  if  not  him  graded  boulder  maybe  social media  manager did it??

Everything Sharma does is always 8C or above.

In the first report Sharma did not grade it but I think the 8C video was published after the first repeat, Rocasolano, who thought it was 8C.

Undoubtedly one of the greatest multi-discipline climbers out there. And to do this and Practice of the Wild approaching 40 and not primarily as a boulderer is pretty damn impressive.
