Not much... posted by Bart ~ 03.06.2012 10:52
Please be very careful because wet or moist sandstone breaks easily! There is no climbing when raining in Fontainebleau but there are some quick drying areas. Several guidebooks tell which they are. It depends on your climbing level if there is something to do just after the rain but 'Figure de Style' 7b and 'Zone Interdit' 7c are good choices. Please don't try to dry holds with chalk but be patient and wait for the wind to dry them. Mont Pivot dries quickly just as all areas on top of the hills. Most people go to 95.2 or Rocher Fin but again, only climb on dry rock because wet sandstone is very fragile!

as it had been said so many times in french, DO NOT CLIMB ON WET HOLDS AND DO NOT DRY THEM WITH ANY MEANS (CHALK, camping gaz or else).
stay at home, visit paris or elsewhere, go hiking in the forest to discover your next projects...
this is the best advice that i can provide to you
enjoy your trip
