Out and About in Apremont Ouest

Apremont Ouest, Fontainebleau

Apremont is huge area, and has many of the best climbs in the forest. Thankfully it is also fairly quick drying, so it was ideal for a slightly dodgy forecast. I chose Apremont Ouest as it is the area I know best, but to be honest, I think it is one of the best for girls. There are so many quality routes without crazy reaches, and it runs to a more technical style of climb. As fortune had it we had an immensely strong crew of 12 girls with the optimism for a dry forecast, and psych enough to scare off the rain!

We were joined by Peggy from Oxford with her itty-bitty-bonus-Betty in the making, still cranking on 7s at 5-months pregnant, as well as a strong local crew and visitors from the US and all over Europe. In all we topped at least 10 7-grade problems between the 12 of us, and climbed for more than 7 hours!

Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a fun day! And THANK YOU to Jonathan Moritz (@generation_crashpad) for the awesome photos!!
