/ VIDEO: Bleau!
This is a short video of a recent bouldering trip to the magical Fontainebleau forest. I've made several trips to Font and it never fails to amaze me, the sheer volume of rock always comes as a surprise. Add this to the setting, one of the most beautiful forests in Europe, and it becomes very difficult to beat.
On this trip we visited a few areas that we hadn't been before, including Dame Jouanne, JA Martin and Petit Bois to name a few, each one more striking than the next. If you're planning a trip soon, Petit Bois and a few pops at Big Jim is an absolute must. Its easily one of the coolest problems in the Forest!

Yep, me too. Superb wee film, nicely shot and put together, well done Chris!
I love JA Martin, when you are up on the ridgeline it feels like you are in the land of the lost.
Super cool! I guess you(s) had a good week then...
A superb evocation of Font, and the music very apposite.
Nice film enjoyed it.
Nearly a 3 year absence from Font for me, makes my feet itchy.
