Dave Graham in Fontainebleau


The young American spends 45 days repeating many of the hardest boulder problems in Fontainebleau

  The nineteen-year old American Dave Graham spent 45 days at Fontainebleau, France, bouldering whenever possible between one bout of rain and the next (20 rainy days, 17 damp and only 3 where conditions were good). Before returning home he amassed an unprecedented and highly impressive number of hard boulder problems, listed below.

Dave Graham is the author of some of the hardest climbs in native New England and responsible for swift repeats of many of the hardest sports routes and boulder problems in the country, including the first repeat of Chris Sharma's "The Mandala" at Buttermilks, California this October.
