Fontainebleau wonderland...

After spending a week in the magical forest of Fontainebleau, I remembered some of the early board ( in the Pub ) meetings with Percy and Graeme. Most of our inspiration and ideas were based the boulders of Font and it was great to be back there in almost perfect conditions and feel as psyched as ever for Climbing. Lucinda and I spent a week with some Australian friends of ours in a really nice Gite just nr Buthiers, we climbed six days out of seven and felt completely destroyed by the end. check out my scarpa blog for some more photos and stories.


The Font trip has made me as keen as ever and managed another one of my projects on wednesday. I was out with James and Dave and we were very lucky to find some dry rock at Earl cragin Yorkshire. We quickly warmed up and realised that Underworld 7c+ was dry. James did it 3rd go and despathed it on about my 6th go atfer falling off the last move and feeling robbed!!
Keep up the training and psyche...Cheers Sam
