Fantastical Fontainebleau

Photos by Jorg Kemner / - During Easter weekend 2009 the youth club of Amsterdam's climbing gym De Klimmuur Centraal spent three days in the forest of Fontainebleau to experience the magic everyone is always talking about. The weather was pretty darn good and most of the rain that did fall, fell at night. The forest was a bit crowded at some areas, but luckily there are more than enough boulders for everyone. Because I twisted my ankle a week before departure, there would be no climbing for me — therefore I had all the time in the world to take photos. So this gallery captures the Amsterdam youngsters as well as a few other climbers.
