/ Top lower grade areas in Fontainebleau
Places that we have done (many will be visited again this year of course)
Cuvier, Apremont, Franchard Isitis, Buthier, Elephant, Sabot, Cul de Chien, Bois Rond, Diplodicus
Handy if it is not too easy to get lost (not me, the students). I tend to avoid/ take extra care at Apremont for this reason. Also generally nice landings and not too high ball is good too.
Someone last year recommended Cache aux Merciers, but we never made it there. So that spot will be high on the list.
Any other special areas that we should explore?
Plus 95.2, Rocher fin, Rocher du Potala to name a few.
Cheers all. I will investigate those 6 spots and definitely include a few of them this year. I am pretty sure I have been to Canon myself before and do like 95.2, but remember finding it rather crimpy and sharp, although that is probably as I was trying only the harder problems. I remember it being a great spot.
What are your favourite problems at those 6 places?
