Fontainebleau. A place in France, just southeast of Paris. Great for camping, being outside, walking and drinking coffee (or whiskey); but most of all, for Bouldering. Climbing on real rock is sooo much better than in a climbing-hall on plastic. Living in flat Holland doesn’t give you a lot of options when it comes to climbing on real rock and/or outside. So I go here about twice a year, but that isn’t nearly as often as I’d like to go. Now that I’m back in Amsterdam, I’ll have to do with my gym where I’ll be off to now…
