Fontainebleau Bunnies

April 14 - April 17

A little bit of je ne quoi in the sand forest of a Paris suburb. Did I sell it to you? Did you know that there is a palace there? Who cares, it’s a Boulderer’s paradise! The forest of Fontainebleau lies in the presence of sand, plateaux and sandstone boulders and rocks. 16,111 routes in 90 crags, isn’t it glorious?

This is a traditional overseas meet that has been organised for many years by Simon MC.

The plan:

  • Leave Thursday 14th April after work and return Monday 18th April, some time in the afternoon.
  • Travel is by car via the Eurotunnel. Anyone wanting to meet the group via other means i.e. plane can be picked up at Fontainebleau station.
  • Major requirements are an enthusiasm for bouldering, bouldering gear, and camping equipment including sleeping items, stoves, and for luxury maybe even bring a camping chair!

Bouldering gear includes: Climbing shoes and chalk bag / liquid chalk. Bouldering mats are advised but not everyone needs to bring one.

Form: Spaces are now closed due to the event occurring in the next week. Please direct any queries to: chair@themmc.org.uk who will then pass it onto Simon.

If you are a prospective member who we haven’t met before, please contact the membership secretary in the first instance and consider meeting us for some indoor climbing. The form will ask you the same sort of questions we ask all new enquirers but the response may be slower than if you contact the membership secretary directly: membership@themmc.org.uk
