This is the story of my first trip to the bouldering mecca Fontainebleau. Located just outside of Paris, France it is home to some of the most famous boulder problems in the world.
When I started climbing I had a pretty narrow view of what outdoor climbing was all about. I traveled to Thailand for my aunt's wedding and that’s where I got my first introduction to climbing as a sport. Upon my return I was psyched to see what climbing was all about. The first months were filled with jugs and jugs on the overhangs. Soon enough I was pushing myself to get to that next grade, the next challenge.
