Adam Ondra bouldering in Fontainebleau

by

Two videos documenting Adam Ondra's first bouldering trip to Fontainebleau, France.

"It feels amazing to imagine yourself as being one of the best climbers of today climbing a boulder problem established over 50 years ago and feeling really awkward on it, and falling!" This is how Adam Ondra commented his first trip to Fontainebleau, adding "I did fall on the on-sight of Marie-Rose, the first 6a." In this case Ondra is talking about Fontainebleau's historic first 6a, established in 1946 by the Bleausard René Ferlet who progressed to lead the successful French expedition which established the first route up the South Face of Aconcagua in 1954.

But this is obviously a completely different story and, returning to present day, guided by the exceptional Jacky Godoffe this December Ondra managed to repeat C'etait Demain (the forest's first 8A established by Godoffe in 1984) and flash classics such as La Merveille (8A+, Marc le Menestrel 1991) as well as Gecko Assis 8B+ (Olivier Lebreton, 2007) during what he described as being "one of the best bouldering trips I've ever had!" Knowing the magic of that forest, it couldn't have been otherwise!
