This area has been around for ever. Some friends and I decided to clean it up for bouldering. When cleaning some of the rock for holds you'll notice that the moss has in some areas given this area stained green rocks. The area is named after fontainebleau, France the world class bouldering area. This area is a great area to work on some tough Palisades boulder climbs.
