Bouldering in France: Fontainebleau Cheese and Slopers

When you live in Yosemite year round like Team CLIF BAR climber Beth Rodden, the winter season can get a little tough to say the least. With 2 storms in the past 3 weeks bringing over 10 feet of snow to the Sierra, it's no wonder that Beth and her crew of climbing partners up and left town in search of some more suitable climbing conditions. Below Beth gives a firsthand account of some of her travels in France, exploration of some of the culinary delights, and time well spent with friends in the forest of Fontainebleau. A month in France.... We left the Bay area early one Saturday morning. This was to be my first overseas trip in almost two years due to injury setbacks, and too many fun options in the Sierra. But, with six of my closest friends all heading over to spend a month bouldering in the forest of Fontainebleau, I couldn't resist joining the fun. Everyone on this trip is a foodie. And it's pretty hard not to be when you live in Berkeley. Luckily for all of them, they can delve into the wonders of French cuisine. Not so lucky for me, I am violently allergic to dairy products, which are probably the biggest staple in French cooking.

Freddie Wilkinson - Team CLIF BAR

In fact, we hear it from the Wells brothers each year after they get knocked out of the Team CLIF BAR Foosball Invitational in the first round. But, sometimes it is actually relevant. Take, for instance, Freddie Wilkinson's attempt at climbing a new mixed route up the West Ridge of Nuptse (a mountain in the Khumbu
