Zach Galla takes down The Game, a boulder with some great history.

Daniel Woods suggested V16 for this rig after making the first ascent in 2010. Carlo Traversi then repeated it and though V15 was more appropriate.

Jon Cardwell nabbed the third ascent, and Jimmy Webb later climbed it for its fourth ascent.

From an article about Webb’s ascent: “Woods re-climbed The Game using Traversi’s beta and agreed with the downgrade, but also noted that the holds Traversi used (overlooked on his FA) had improved, likely due to extensive brushing. Jon Cardwell confirmed the V15 grade when he made the third ascent.”
