Perhaps for the actual moves, but just remember the FA was in 1946!!!

so true, the two things I love about Font are all the old geezers cruising super hard routes, then offering beta when you flail yourself stupid on it, and the fact that you get ridiculously strong both in the head and in the biceps :-)

FA was by Rene Ferlet. If you are interested in bouldering history, check out John Gill's website -

This problem was ace:

There is also a brilliant steep highball behind La Marie Rose, beautiful line, ~6mtrs tall with good pockets most of the way and a hideous top out (as usual), I think it was about 6b or so.
