I don’t have a great shot of the Front South Arete, but I will be posting again soon with that photo and a bit of a feature on some brand new holds from Kilter that we’ve got set up there. We also set with a large order of brand new So Ill holds!

New So Ill!

The new So Ill holds we got are all over the Font Boulder and we saved a few for next week on the Front Hueco as well. It’s hard to miss the huge purple Cut feature on the middle of the front face:

The Cut. Ours is purple.

Here are a few more holds from the many different So Ill sets now gracing the Font:

Have fun looking around the boulder and picking out all our new holds. There are several features and many smaller hand-sized holds in different colors and styles. We’ve finally finished our popular ‘Roids collection with the addition of the Big Roid:

And it’s even green to match the rest of the Roids we have! You can check out the rest of So Ill’s holds on their website here:

Special Kilter Preview

We’ve also got some brand new sets from Kilter and we consolidated them on the Southwest (front right) arete of the Font and some on the slab so you can easily find them to check them out. Kilter is a new company from shaper Ian Powell, who founded E-Grips and who you probably know as he works at The Spot. There was an excellent article on Ian in Rock and Ice two months ago, and this video as well:

The problems with Kilter holds on the Font are exclusively Kilter handholds. We’ve got other Kilter scattered throughout the gym and we’re really looking forward to getting the rest of our order, which is the full current line, in the near future. Ian is carving up even more amazingness in his little workshop, so look forward to being the first in the country to climb on new grips from one of the world’s foremost hold shapers.

A little Kilter preview of a groundbreaking shape. If you don't know why, go find it and feel it. This hold is currently on the brown problem on the middle Dojo arete just under the roof.

So that’s all for now. More on Kilter soon so stay tuned for that and come into the Spot to check out all our new grips!!!
