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).

"C'est un jou." It's a game. In the video "Bleau," Marc LeMenestrel falls off this problem...this, a measly 4b! Extremely technical, the problem requires a very delicate push/pull with the leg/arm. Totally funky. Still, this is worth doing if you appreciate the antithesis of thuggy bouldering. The only issue is that it's a stopper problem for those who aspire to complete the entire blue circuit at La Roche aux Sabots....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
