Round the World in 40 Climbs: Episode 12: Font Firsts

So I went to font to look at the first of its grade for Font boulder problems. Whilst the first few were OK if a little terrifying, the middle grade felt easier before I was shut down on the first 7a!

Fontainebleau Coaching Holidays

We offer some amazing technique coaching holidays based around Fontainebleau and the bouldering there. We love these courses and the climbing is so intense that your technique will improve exponentially during the week. The course nature of the rock means we will probably need a day off at some point for skin care.

Although the days are relaxed with a gentle start with fresh croissants and coffee, followed by a warm up at a bouldering area. We then stop for a social lunch break of fine french cheeses and bread. So this really does feel like a bit of a holiday as we as a learning experience.

The accommodation is camp, although we can arrange a gite (french holiday home) although this will cost extra. We charge £800 per person for 7 days. We will give discount for two or more people booking on the same week.


These course are run in conjunction with how to climb harder so features coaching, so this is not just a guided adventure. Instead we will coach you to make an ascent of Picos De Europa’s most impressive peak.
