Fontainebleau - One Week

See video

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:

Chasing Rabbits

"One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up
And tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
