My elbows are recovering slowly, but part from that I feel pretty fit. Fontainebleau was the first outdoor trip after Kandersteg last summer. I love the Fontainebleau forest in April.

Neil Hart is world famous for his monthly videos in which he, and sometimes friends, climb the most beautiful 7’s in Fontainebleau. His videos are great for discovering problems and finding new beta… although Neils length isn’t very representative for the average climber.
Here’s a video of Monkee family member Anthony Gullsten (FIN) in Fontainebleau. I love this guys climbing style and the slow-motion of Rainbow Rocket (8a dyno) at the end is indeed jaw-dropping.
