A left leaning dike leaves a black streak through the right end of the boulder/cliff and makes for some fun moves. The holds might be slightly atypical of the rest of the park, but different can be good. Start standing and work up and left on crimps and edges to a topout that feels a bit high.


The right side of the Font boulder (a very wide and sloping mini-cliff with quite a few lines) just above Chuckie's Torture and Jugs

This climb is full value. Technical moves down low lead to some difficult moves on sloping crimps to top out. It doesn't climb quite as well as it looks, but it's still quite good. More people should climb this.

Also, there is no way this climb is v4 (unless I'm missing something). It feels significantly harder. If you called it v6, I wouldn't argue.

Great problem with great movement! I have to disagree w/ Christian, though. I think v4 seems about right.
