New Font Guide & Swedish DVD

17 Aug 2010 16:45

We've just got in the brand new Fontainebleau guide from the legend that is Jacky Godoffe. Jacky has done Font guides before, with his famous Purple and Blue off-piste circuit guides.

This new Font A Bloc goes away from the circuits and is more of a (huge) select guide to the best of le Foret (most in the 7 grade but alot in the 6's and 8's). I write Foret but this guide is actually only for the areas around Fontainebleau & Barbizon. This is Vol 1 of 3 (other 2 to come in the future) and at 335 (A5) pages its a hefty book.
Pourquoi? Colour photos of pretty much every problem with descriptions and topo lines means you will not be wondering if you've found the right bloc. Add in the excellent maps and information for each area and this is a guide that will be keeping you awake at night as you go 'just one more area'...

Font A Bloc available online or instore >>

From the bloc to the rope, Crackoholic is a new DVD covering the beautiful Swedish granite area of Bohuslan. Having visited this area last year, I can safely say that this barely known place is a stunning location for anyone who loves granite. From trad fingercracks to safe sport climbs you can find it all here. 90 areas spread across a landscape carved out of fairytales, Bohuslan has somehow escaped the attention of most climbers from the UK. This DVD will change that. Watch the trailer below:
