Mechrist's photos above show the remarkable surface you find on some of the stones.

Something for everybody.

Something for evertbody.
That's one of the great things in Bleau. Bouldering in Bleau can be just as difficult as you'd like it to be, and so many circuits throughout the forest are dedicated to beginners, or there are even those especially put up for small children.
Globally speaking, bouldering can be frustrating if you're not... say at least at Fb 6a level, but in Bleau, you'll find everything - harder stuff or easier problems.

Rocher Canon is great.
It really is. Many probs of all difficulties. Easy, intermediate and hard circuits. Cool landings. And the closeness to the Bois-le-Roi train station makes it possible to enjoy half-day outings there, starting from Paris. I'd often go there early in the morning, enjoying the forest waking up... birds, squirrels, wild boars, deer.
It can take one just one hour from the departure from Gare de Lyon (Paris) to Rocher Canon. Trains to and fro - like every hour. And you can even take a bike along on the train (bike rentals around Gare de Lyon).

for me the best spot in Font was Cuvier or something like that. It's just beside the road, with millions of boulders, nice scenery and excellent climbing :)

Climbing at Bas Cuvier. You can see the blocks and the landings.

Yes, I guess Cuvier rules in Bleau (Bas-Cuvier + Rempart). There you'll find everything.

Just wondering: Do they still use rosin at 'bleau? If you don't use it, then you must to do some of the problems? They won't go without it?

Gosh, this place looks so much like Castle Rock State Park I almost want to say I know which problems they're doing . . .
