American climber Daniel Woods has ticked the long standing Boulder Canyon project to give The Game, for which he has proposed a grade of Font 8C+/V16.

Quoted on the BigUp website Woods said:

"I worked on it at least 17 days over two years. Compared to Terremer and Jade, this is definitely another level."

BigUp Productions captured the ascent on film and will be releasing it for the Reel Rock Tour in the US.

If the grade of Font 8C+ stands it will make The Game one of the world's hardest boulder problems.

Daniel Woods is currently on very strong form and in the last year has climbed multiple Font 8B+ boulder problems such as American Gangster and The Beach.
