Jimmy Webb climbs Lucid Dreaming (8C)Fri Night Vid

This week's Friday Night Video is a bouldering masterclass from Jimmy Webb. He attempts Lucid Dreaming, a notoriously crimpy Font 8C which is very difficult to find in the right condition. On the heavier side, Webb explains that he usually shies away from climbs of this style and that climbing the problem was a pivotal moment for him. A fun video with some stunning footage of the bouldering paradise of Bishop.

Written Font 8C+ when it is 8C? Jimmy didn't propose any upgrade as far as I'm aware and the consensus is 8C so I think a mistake has been made. The Process on the same boulder is 8C+.
