As mentioned before, the send train is rolling along in the forest of Fontainebleau. The latest to take advantage of the crispy conditions is Finnish power house Nalle Hukkataival, who's there with Anthony Gullsten, also from Finland.
I'm in Font now and the conditions are ridiculously awesome!
I had had a pretty good climbing day and managed to send a project I brushed a few days ago. I can't believe there are still unclimbed boulders like this in Font!
I named the problem 'Realist' and graded it 8B+.
There are a few projects that I'm working on, so stay tuned for more, we've still got another week left here!
