Bouldering in fontainebleau helene dutfoy

First bouldering experience in Fontainebleau

I went to Fontainebleau for my first time at the end of April for 3 days with a van ⛰️

With the help of a Fontainebleau guidebook (quite useful to find your bouldering spot, as the area is quite big, with different levels of difficulty, popularity and sun exposure), we drove to our first area and got things started...

Having only experienced indoor bouldering, I discovered new sensations at Fontainebleau. The need of a partner to secure you, the feeling of the stone under your hands, the grip of the shoes on the rocky surface... And solving the puzzle without having colored grips to follow!

But most of all, I had a peak at the outdoor climbing vibe and culture, with a series of vans from all over Europe parked on the parkings, and having encountered people of all ages, families with babies, groups of friends, encouraging each other and enjoying the simplicity of the outdoor life, while challenging themselves on the rocks.
