We had decided to take the back roads instead of the motorway to avoid having to pay for tolls, so total drive time was about 5hr30min. Had a nice steady drive through France, both of us being glad we took the backroads as got to see so much more of France this way. I even ended up seeing Saint Quentin which is twinned with my home town. Having an early night after arriving in the Forest camp site psyched for the following day of climbing. The only issue for the drive over was… well all i can say is don’t just eat chocolate raisins for 3/4 of the day!
The wether was awesome the whole time we where there. Just warm enough for a t-shirt during the day, but at night it really dropped. One morning’s read of the temp gauge in the car read -2ºC. The cold nights also meant that early morning everything was damp so nothing really came into climbing condition till about 11am. Short approaches where really nice too with our biggest being 10mins. To sum up Font climbing is awesome and will be returning soon, although next time to climb something hard!
