bleau will probably get some rain.

for sport, i would suggest paklenica, croatia and kalymnos, greece. both should be dry and have perfect temps. also check out southren italy/spain/portugal.

the same goes for bouldering. try to go south, the father you go, the better yre the chances of not getting rained on.

Yup, ^^ what he said! If you go in October, Val di Mello is beautiful that time of year for bouldering. For Sport you'll find a couple of long routes there that are bolted (slab-o-rific) and Sass Remenno... but not much else.

And of course: Finale Ligure!
Although most of Italy has the traditional week of rain beginning of November.

South of Spain was brilliant at that time last year, we had perfect weather in El Chorro.

Boogah, south of France?

Paolo, Sardegna?

Indeed - Calanques would be an excellent option for sport! Great rock, multi-pitch or crag, fabulous weather, fabulous food... but then there's not much bouldering...

everywhere south....Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece...
If I had to choose I'd say:
Spain: Murcia and Costa Blaca;
France: Calanques
Italy: Gaeta/Sperlonga-Sardinia-Finale.
Croatia: Paklenica;
Greece: Kalimnos.

Bouldering? I don't know...Font for sure, than maybe the Swiss spots like Cresciano...

Oh man, of course, totally forgot about that! If the weather is dry, Ponte Brolla for sport (also multipitch) and Cresciano for bouldering are only like 1hr apart. It's awesome there (both granite).

Presles near Grenoble in the southern France is a nice multipitch sport spot - 200m of vertical limestone, mostly bolted for your pleasure, and it's one of those places with pretty good weather out there...Verdon is another must in the region - callanques too for sure...
