Bleau wrap-up!

I'm back home after 9 days in Paris and Fontainebleau! Last two days were rainy so we spent the first one resting and chilling a bit in Larchant, and the last day we took the chance and made a small tourist visit of Paris! It was actually really nice! And in the evening a hardcore gym session in Massy! Haven't been that pumped in a while, but that's ok... gotta get fitter for the upcoming comps!

Boulders everywhere, speeding down the forest roads, perfect shapes, sore fingertips, compressing slopers, hard mantles, traffic jams, crazy french drivers, the overcrowded Paris metro, coffee at Champs-Elysees, speaking French, old-school Bleausards cranking harder than you despite wearing shoes hardly considered climbing shoes, SLOPERS, a whole-week persistant muscle soreness, chilling at the fireplace at Larchant house, meeting new people, swearing in French, getting lost amongst the blocks, FINDING BETA, knowing the guidebook by heart, eating baguettes&raclette, getting frustrated and then sending the problem, the enourmous Massy session, the perfect arete of L'angle parfait, all the cool people coming together for a session in the forest... it's been an amazing trip! Many thanks to everyone, especially Augustin, Morgan, Jarno, Christophe and Nico, le Grand Chef. Enjoy the photo selection below.
all you need for a day in the forest :)
