/ Economical travel to Font.
Passenger ferry and hitching presumably?
have you made it that way though? I was just wondering how people manage to keep the price down.
We did it earlier this year by car + tunnel. Did about three days for £110 per head - £70 each on fuel, motorway charges and tunnel plus £40 each for food, wine, camping, and a stopover in a cheap motel on the way down.
Ask around on here or at your local wall if you can't get a car full.
wtf? Are you flying to font by helicopter and renting a room in the palace?

No but gave a climber a lift back through the tunnel from Font
My cheapest trip there was as paid conference attenddee in the Palace so all fares and accomodation paid for!
I did this earlier this year - £8 return on the megabus, something like €8 to Font.
Beware - if you don't manage to catch a lift from Font town, you'll blow the rest of your budget on a taxi!
From the town you can walk to quite a few climbing areas.
Boulder bus? Or share a car between 4?
