Video of the week – À Préhension, Fontainebleau

One of my most memorable sends from the last trip to Font was the one of À Préhension in Coquibus longs vaux. Even though I was totally wrecked after having climbed from early morning to late afternoon that day, I still decided to go and check this problem out, parltly thanks to some persuasion from Neil. I had seen it in one of his doses a while back and ever since been very keen to try it. When he told me I would do it in a session I got even more psyched, although I did’nt entirely believe him since that’s what he says about most things. However, after having found my way up there, I figured out a way to do the moves pretty quickly, and then surprised my self by fireing the problem first go. I was very happy, very tired and at the same time feeling some bitterness since I then had to go back to Neil and admit to him that he (for once) was right.

In spite of the fact that À Préhension is located just a couple of hundred meters up hill from Fata Morgana, it doesn’t seem to be getting a lot of attention. I am not sure why since it’s an amazing climb, but maybe people just has’nt realized that it’s there yet. I for sure didn’t know about it until it turned up in Neil’s video, as in many cases before!
