Description

This is a great introduction to the Mountain Circuits of old. A fun couple of hours following the parkour markers all the way through the plateau at Secteur l'Elephant. Try not to touch the ground as much as you can. Note** The first 6 problems are in the main are of the sector .

Access issues inherited from France

As of 2020, some privately owned climbing areas may have restricted access. Check with https://www.ffme.fr/

Approach

After parking (legally of course) walk across the road and up to the right towards the stairs. Walk up the stairs and a little further to the left to find bloc 13.

Ethic inherited from Fontainebleau

ATTENTION:

* FIRES ARE PROHIBITED IN THE FOREST *

The sandstone is fragile. To preserve the area (and the climbs) please adhere to the following rules:

  1. Use chalk with caution and brush it off afterwards (including huge tick marks).

  2. Chalk should only be used on hands, never directly on the rock!

  3. Clean the bottom of your climbing shoes removing all sand and dirt before any climb. This is essential to limit rock erosion.

  4. DONT CLIMB ON WET ROCK!!!!

  5. Night climbing is prohibited to reduce the impact on the animal habitat.

  6. Dont use the base of the routes as your toilet. Go into the forest a little further off the track or out of the area for a 1 and dig a hole for a 2.
