Got home from Font around midnight on Saturday night (Halloween) to see a single carved pumpkin at home with a light inside. In the morning it transpired that someone that evening had taken Connor's pumpkin and smashed it just around the corner. I was taken with his reaction - very laissez-faire and musing on how he had the enjoyment from making the pumpkin. He was just a bit disappointed that I didn't get to see it. He's almost human sometimes!

Font 2009 summary

This was a bonus trip. I had a bad back for a month beforehand thanks to a Connor Kung-Fu Panda drop on me when stretching after a run. So no climbing and whacked out on painkillers - not ideal before a bouldering trip.

Traditional Friday night / Saturday morning driving ferry and drive only to find wet Font greeting us.






Rocher Canon - running


Haute Pleines / Isatis


Cuvier - rest day




Gorge aux Chats

Joined the inveterate tickers club - that and I can't really remember what I've done in Font apart from Carnage, l'Abbatoir and a few others.

Great trip; too hot for getting on some stuff, but rather that that raining all week. Lucky to get stuff done too, with my lack of preparation. Not done 7b in the forest for a few years!
