The photos are taken from Sylvain Jouty's excellent book: Bleau. La Foret de Fontainebleau et ses rochers. 1982.

I'm cross posting this as it's relevant to several threads.

These are from 1948 it would seem

Blakey: Great Facebook site and interesting photos. I hope the next step is to organize and contextualize the photos better.

Hi Marlow,

I stumbled across them (the photo) on the Facebook site I posted up about the other day.

https://www.facebook.com/climbing.in.the.80s/photos_stream

There's no annotation other than ALLAIN 1948......

As I mentioned on the other thread there's quite a few older photos, of Comici for example that I've not seen elsewhere.

Regards,

Steve

Wish I had known of that venue in 1982 when I was living in France and still climbing. Gorgeous.

Fontainebleau February


Mechrist

From Oslo: Around 1000 miles. Time by train: 24 hours. Driving a car: 20 hours. Flying: 2,5 hours.

I'm off to Font in the near future climbing with someone bouldering problems not far from my own level. I'm too competitive to climb with someone far above my own level... Lol...

Andy.

Cool move. The use of momentum and swing is an art.

And excuse me for hijacking Steve's thread. I will start a new one... soon.

Would anyone know the best season to go there?

Thanks!
