News Jean-Jacques Naëls, alias Pépito, has published a new guidebook. It's the updated second edition of Au Grès des Trois Pignons (2006). See TopoBleau for more information (French and English, 208 pages, € 21).

The database provides information about 24.000 boulder problems in 200 areas in Fontainebleau. An interactive map shows the location of these areas. The basic and advanced search help you to find the problems you are looking for. More than 10.000 problems are illustrated by a photo or video. All this information is freely available to everyone.

If you sign in and create an account (top-right) you can log and rate your ascents. You can create a list of your 'to do' problems and keep track of your friends public ascents (you can control the visibility, private or public, of all your ascents). Your private profile page shows all of your ascents and statistics.

Your star-rating and difficulty-rating will be helpful for other climbers and it will make the database more accurate. Another way to contribute is to send us your images. We prefer images of boulders that have not yet been illustrated. Please mail these to us, together with an accurate description (name of the problem, climber and photographer): Contact. Please limit the attachments to 4Mb. You can also use this address to send us links to your Vimeo or Youtube videos, or your corrections, new problems and suggestions.

Respect the forest. Leave no traces.
