Description 

If you are going to Fontainebleau for the first time, or want a good taste of the bouldering there before heading to the more chic (and generally more difficult) Bas Cuvier, I highly recommend this area. Packed with very easy to very difficult problems, you will likely run into more than a few bleausards who will gladly walk the problems. There are at least five established circuits, as well as dozens of "hors-piste" (off piste/circuit) individual problems. The blue circuit is stout, even though no problem is rated higher than font 5b (V2). For those wanting a more difficult & equally classic circuit, the Red contains some incomparable lines. Do either circuit and you will begin to understand the beauty of bouldering at Font! Be certain to bring a carpet square...your shoes will be worthless without one...sandy!


Getting There 

La Roche aux Sabots is located approximately 7 kilometers (maybe a bit more) south of Milly la Foret on D16. Park in the large parking area. The approach is about 50 meters down the main trail (note: this is the same parking area for the famous Cul de Chien as well).

Le Tiroir is the 22nd problem of the red circuit, and is located on the famous "Surplombe du Tiroir," on which many classic lines exist. Begin very low (SDS), and climb the jugs to the undercling.
