bulletNeed a car in the Fontainebleau area if you want to boulder instead of just visiting the Château which was used as a hut for the Royal family when they were hunting in the beautiful woods outside Paris.  It was used as  a headquarter for the Nazis during WW II, was liberated by US General Patton in 1944.

Beautiful area One of the bouldering sites (12966 bytes)

Really nice areas like here with the tree and the strange stone to the right and bouldering areas with huge stones on a sandy beach (there is no water, so bring lots of it!)
