/ 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!
