Daring Deeds - real stories, expeditions, road trips and adventure

6 days and nights with Alex

By Dan Bradley | 20, Nov, 2008

So we popped out to Fontainebleau for a few days which proved to be a mistake…
It rains a lot there! All in all we had a day and a half of climbing, although I managed to get up Carazina, an 8a in Bas Cuvier which is a bit of a stamina fest so well happy with that.

It seemed all we did was spend a lot of time in cafe’s and under boulder’s eating but fortunately we managed to get taken in by the gardens, a very kind and warm family and without them I would of had to spend all of my time stuck in a hotel room with my friend Alex, who is cool, but 6 days and nights with no one else to talk to…..well ;o)
