Font Bouldering Trip 2018

This Bouldering mecca is set 90km south of Paris in the forest that surrounds the town of Fontainebleau. The bouldering quality is world class and vast. This well-known area has impressed all that visit, for its beauty, charm and variety of boulders. It has everything from small boulders to let the children explore in complete safety to all the slabs, aretes, overhangs and mantels that you could wish for of every grade.

Come and join everyone from Boulder Shack, it's Free! (...kind of)

In a nutshell:

A few of the Boulder Shack team are off to Font and we’d love you to join us. We are not charging anyone to join us, it would just be great to share a climb together.

We will provide you with all the info you need to join us on the journey, to stay at the campsite and how and where to go bouldering each day. You can join us for all of this or just the bits you like.


We will be travelling from Southampton, catching a ferry from Dover to Calais and heading to Font just South of Paris. Departing on 9th April, returning on the 14th April.

The Boulder Shack team and customers will be driving their own cars. If you don’t have a car then just join the facebook group for the event as there will be plenty of seats going.


We’ll be staying at a lovely campsite in the heart of the bouldering. Just give them a buzz, say you’re with the Boulder Shack group and they’ll allocate a pitch for you so that we’re all together. There are also some camping cabins available (these might not be right next to the campers but not more than a 5min walk).


We will provide you with all the information you need to get to local supermarkets to buy food for the trip. Most nights we imagine that people will look after themselves but we will arrange a BBQ night towards the end of the week, and maybe more!


This is what it’s all about right! We will be heading to the main bouldering spots each day, selecting which will be best based on the conditions. You can join us in convoy or go off to your own bouldering location.

For each of the main locations we will provide some maps on how to get there from our campsite.

We will be taking a selection of bouldering pads with us and people will be welcome to share them. We will also be selling cheap boulder pads at Boulder Shack in the build up to this trip.


Whilst in Font we will be offering a few 3 hour bouldering coaching classes, these can be signed up to using the links below.

Pre-Trip Classes:

Prior to leaving we will be running a selection of coaching and preparation classes to help you get the most out of your Font bouldering experience. Again, check out the links below for more information and booking.
