Bouldering at Fontainebleau.

Font is probably the best bouldering area in the world, with tens of thousands of problems dotted around a beautiful forest just south of Paris. Its a great place to fine-tune your technique, throw some cool shapes, and for beginners to get on real rock with a minimum of faff. Beanies, heel hooks, and calling people “dude” are all optional but encouraged. When you aren’t bouldering, you can enjoy la vie Francaise with cheap and plentiful
bread, cheese and wine.

This trip will be happening over the Early May Bank Holiday, 2nd-4th of May, but we’re organizing it early to get cheaper bookings on the Channel Tunnel. We’ll probably be staying in the campsite at Milly La Foret again, which is pleasant, handy for the climbing, and has an in-situ bakers’ van for the all-important baguettes.

Most people either do the long weekend or take an extra day of holiday. We’ve found in the past that leaving work as early as possible and driving down as far as the F1 Motel at Compiegne on the Thursday or Friday night gets you a pretty full day in the next day. Leaving mid afternoon on the Monday should get you back to Cambridge late but not too late.
