For a project day, this was a pretty good one. After a quick 'warm up' on some blues with typically tenuous Font top outs we got drawn into Helen's project, Le Diéséliste (7a). Sam and Helen (covered here in our Sunday Send) sent this, whilst Amber got the short version, Le Cambouis du Diéséliste (6c). Onwards and up the hill to settle an old score: Le Grain de Beauté (6c+), and Le Grain de Beauvais (7b/7a+), two rather different animals on one low, wrinkled prow. Beauté, that traverses the lip with a gorgeous sequence of cross-throughs, went a treat for Amber with some ingrained beta (only her first Font 6c+!!) and for Jason also, making the bloc look much smaller with his 6'4 frame. Sam sessioned the straight-up Le Grain de Beauvais with various combinations of experimentation and grrr, finally latching the last hold with an interesting three point cut loose on the slabby top out.
He got the route, and a dead leg.
