Located at Recloses, Jour De Chasse was first done by Jan Hojer at Font 8c. For anyone not familiar with the power that Mr Hojer packs, he’s done 1-9 on a campus board – yes, that’s correct 1-9! In May 2014 renowned boulderer, Jimmy Webb, repeated Jour De Chasse in just 15 minutes when he clocked-up the fourth ascent. Webb offered the grade of V14 or Font 8b+.
