The Essential Fontainebleau guide introduces the climber to the magical bouldering found in the forest of Fontainebleau. Every climber should visit Fontainebleau at least once in their life - the beauty of the forest and the sculpted sandstone boulders attract climbers from around the planet, keen to test their technique and ability on stones shaped as though for the very soul of a climber.
This new edition of Essential Fontainebleau has been expanded and improved to help the first-time visitor to navigate the classic venues. It also provides advice, guidance and keys to the boulder problems, and the ethics and techniques required to become a devotee of the world's finest collection of stones - a first step on the path to becoming a 'Bleausard'. The style of the guidebook is very clear which allows ease of use and quick choice of problem or circuit. It is the most affordable of all the Font guidebooks.
