Fontainebleau

My christmas present from Molly this year was a trip to Fontainebleau — how cool is that?? To my surprise, she chose late February as the time to go, which made me skeptical at first but as it turns out it was the perfect time to visit. The temperatures were very nice around 10 degrees and apart from the occasional rain (which you can’t avoid at any time of year really) it was great climbing weather. We climbed 5 out of the 7 days, which was quite productive and had an amazing time discovering the secrets of the forest. It was Molly’s first time there and she fell in love with it immediately so it’s safe to say we’ll return soon…
