This problem is trickier than it looks, but given the right balance of ingenuity and perseverance, it is a thoroughly satisfying send! Sit start under the left angle, make a strong move into a groove

A long traverse on decent holds involves a few complicated moves over a butt-dragging rock. Do-able without a spotter if you don't mind rolling off the rock a few times. Thoroughly engaging, and wor

Jolie petite traversée avec des trous. Parfait pour une séance en solo. Un crash suffit, les 2 mouvements à caler sont au début. L’accès le plus simple est par la route de Barbizon à Fontainebleau.

Beautiful traverse with mostly slopers, where the first few moves are definitely the hardest. Finish on the left of the nose with a very doable mantle into a victory jug

An unusual problem for Fontainebleau, this climbs a low roof on sharp pockets. Creative insertion of toes, and good core strength definitely help!

Biodégradable 7b
Rocher de la Salamandre Est

A low but interesting 3D problem that benefits from foot locks and toe hooks. It was originally thought to be a dyno problem, but shorties can technique the hell out of it and make it super cool!!

Gorges du Houx Oiseaux de Proie

A super fun upside down problem that lends itself to all manner of toe and heel-hookerie on pockets through a roof. (just make sure your toe doesn't get stuck in the hole !! )

Cuisinière Crête Sud

Mid-height arete just off trail between Isatis and Cuisinaire. In my memory it's a bit Morpho with the business at the top. Appealing line to try. Apparently there is a right version now with a goo

Cool, kinda techy compression and not too high. Good flat landing. Video is Brazil from 2011 (before break). Send starting at 1:07 I think it's correctly linked to this start time)

Low compressy slopey problem. Decent landing. Fun and often overlooked but worth checking out. The business is in the bottom/middle.

Buthiers Piscine

This is an all time line. Tall with a nice flat landing. Good with a spot since the business is midway up. Kinda techy arete with thin holds on face leads to a decent hold at the transition. From here

One of the best compression lines anywhere, though a bit Morpho. Trust the squeeze and then figure out how to top out. Good landing but spot is helpful. Try not to step right at the top and instead go

Thin committing slab. Start as low as you can and do your best to stand up and then keep standing up til you get there, working up bad feet and a seam that feels harder than you want it to. Good flat

Bleau's Art 7b

A bit of a reachy start if you're short, but take an undercut and a sidepull on the left and make a big move to the right. Climb using heel hooks on both sides, and marginal slopey crimps in compress

Hyper Plomb 7a

Very approachable start with a committing reach move high up. Fairly flat landing but you want a pad stack and spot to deal with the top out.

Amazing bright orange slab. A bit delicate and can feel reachy but also can be easier if you keep on a little longer and top out higher. Really nice. Landing slopes down to the side so need pads and a

Step up to begin, then you'll find a nice crimp for your right hand, good hold for your left next to the lighter part of the rock. Nice, quick line

This is one of those lines that sucks you in. You'll get up to the slopers on your first go, and they don't even feel that bad at first. But the mantle is crazy hard no matter how you go at it (and

This problem has it all. A pinchy sit start, a tiny hole for your toe, a mono pocket to pull, two slopers, two crimps, a mantle found in an arête/wall/slab combined in one small boulder.

The line should work great as a sit start too, even though it’s defined as a stand from the higher holds. Moving to the right and down from there can prove tricky - there’s a reachy way and another wa

First move is easier if you're tall, but can be done by shorties using a couple of terrible crimps in opposition. Pulling the roof, it helps to be small, so it all works out in the end.

Great Boulder with a cool cross over move. A high heel on the arête makes going for the slot much easier for short people. I’m 5 Foot 1” and it worked really well for me.

Crimpy traverse moves followed by a high slab. The end is tricky if you are short because you need to palm your right hand using a left to hook around the arete to be able to reach the top

This boulder has amazing moves and looks stunning. If you first look at it you might think it is a bit high. The end holds are jugs though, so no need to be scarred!

Deserves it’s name. This boulder is stunning! The mantle feels a bit expo because there is a rock right behind it. Make sure to bring a spotter!
