Recent Font Trip

Hi Again, we have just returned for a week trip to Fontainebleau where we had the hottest temps we have every had. Unless you got up really early it was just roasting hot and made the bouldering a little tricky but we did manage to get a few things done.
Deb managed to complete the following and also did most of the moves on Les Beaux Quartiers(f8a) and losts of moves of Alta (f7c), shame it was so hot else I think more would have gone down.

  • Extorsion de Fond   7a+ (7b)
  • Coup de Vent direct   7a
  • 70° à l'Ombre   6c+
  • Le Dernier Problème droite   7a
  • Vigipirate   7a

I managed to tick a couple of as well, but the heat makes me lazy.

  • Extorsion de Fond   7a+ (7b)
  • Coup de Vent direct   7a
  • Rouleau Compresseur   7a
  • Yogi 7b
  • Les Monos 7a
Check out the video of Yogi here .

Debs Completes Ben's Roof

On Sunday the 11th of September Deb completed Ben's Roof ((Font 7c+) and for reference she did not use the knee bar method) at Raven Tor  in the Peak District. After only 3 short sessions  and only 10th month after having of baby daughter Jamie.  It was almost done the previous weekend droping the last two moves and then lack of skin and the sun coming out. She had previoulsy tried this before Jamie came along and almost doing it twice at around 3/4 month Pregnant so was please to get this project ticket off and her hardest boulder problem to date. At them momoent we have no video's or photo's but she says she will try and repeat for the video at some point.
