In March, Nalle Hukkataival spent several weeks in the bouldering paradise of Fontainebleau. His biggest project of the stay was the celebration of the hardest course in Fontainebleau (LACRUX reported). In one day!

The black parcours ED + in Cuisinière counts 34 Boulder as a whole and demands of all its climbing styles: plates, last, dynamos and highballs. The crowning glory is an 8a plate boulder. He was once in Fontainebleau, knows what it means to stand on virtually non-existent kicks and looking for friction on flat handles in order to make a round and wobbly exit at the end.

On the road with the right crashpad

The locals, called Bleausards, are often only out with a small cloth or piece of carpet. They clean the sand of the climbing finches with it, because the rocks of the boulder blocks (sandstone) are very soft and are unnecessarily rasped off by dirty finches. There are numerous blocks whose treads suddenly become bigger after a few years, because the abrasion is so great. But enough of the blabber. Of course, not everyone has to be so brave as Cleauards and Pad do not climb. We prefer a cozy pad that also serves as a sleeping pad. Such a copy is the Dreamtime of Ocun. Here is the Dreamtime for a special price, Simply enter the discount code of LACRUX when ordering and you will receive the pad 5% cheaper.
