A short and simple edit of some problems from a week in Fontainebleau in April 2014. Fontainebleau is surely the most full package Bouldering area in the world, combining climbing at all levels, food, culture and scenery in such a perfect blend that makes you want to stay forever.
The weather was a little warm but we managed to pick our fights and find shade and better conditions to try the things we wanted. This short edit features problems from 7A to 7C, with some real classics in there.
If you get the chance, go. You won't regret it.
Problems in Order:

BD Athlete Nalle Hukkataival sends Gioia, Varazze, Italy

See video

Possibly the hardest boulder problem in the world, Gioia combines a long sequence of microscopic crimps with a heart-breaking finish. Drawn by the rumors, Nalle Hukkataival traveled to Varazze, Italy to try it.

Nalle makes it look like somewhere in the 6C or 6C+ range, but this is one of the very hardest problems in the world, meaning 8C or possibly 8C+. The grade of Gioia will be discussed for some time yet and further repeats are needed before it can settle, but like Nalle says: Let's remember that Gioia means Joy.
