Same here! i thought i was the only person! i had this happen today, around 6700 RPMS it would not go in and i had not idea what happened this has happened to me other times as well not just once, and i know its not a miss shift because the fact my buddy has a 2008 and his shifts fine!
It is well-documented that the 1 to 2 shift under high rpms is generally unsuccessful when shifting extremely fast.

The bigger issue is the associated damage caused by that grinding.

Also, notchiness in low gear shifts at any speed is a current concern. My SA says there is an SiB for this. I will have more details in a few weeks.
