Bouldering in Cap Gris Nez

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Bouldering in Cap Gris Nez

At the bottom of the cliff, you can find some good bouldering. Bring a crash or two and some good spotters, because the landing is generally not so good as on this boulder.

Climbing in the wilderness

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Climbing in the wilderness

Jarek climbing in the rocky wilderness of gorges d'apremont, fontainebleau. LOTS of boulders in this area, and lots of circuits. Sometimes hard to find your way around. This area dries very quickly after rain (and we needed that!).

Girl at the waterfall

Average Rating = 3.88/5 Girl at the waterfall

In the close neighbourhood of the crag of Chambly you find the Cascades du Hérisson, a beautiful series of waterfalls on the Hérisson river. Though very touristic, still a very nice half-day hike to do on one of your resting days. This picture is taken at closest fall, the cascade de l'Eventail. By the way, the valley along the hike is bordered with beautiful rocks, but no routes on it .. :(

Technical details: Minolta Maxxum/Dynax 7D camera with Minolta 17-35/2.8 D lens at 35mm. Shutter time 1/4, f32, iso 100
