Fontainebleau

Fontainebleau is a bouldering area in France consisting of many crags spread over the Foret de Fontainebleau, west of the town of Fontainebleau.

The area is renowned as one of the premier bouldering destinations in the world and has a long history. Many people will have inevitably scrambled over the sandstone boulders through the ages, but more organised climbing started in the area in the late 1800s and early 1900s when climbers from Paris, often training for larger objectives in the Alps, would get the train to fontainebleau to test themselves on the boulders.
