If I remember correctly, the national climbers from Delta Rovers made some successful ascents in Nyamuk some months back. Francis flashed Chess, and Hafzanizam and Hafiz cleaned it too. Hafzanizam then cleaned Osmosis on the 2nd attempt. But best to check with the folks who were there. Just typing this off bits and pieces of what I remembered talking to Francis.
