Routes on Éléphant

We like Éléphant

such a surreal place! fortuitous meeting with a old timer bleuzard at "le coeur" made this place even more special.
Brilliant climbing. So much sand you would think you were at the beach, except this is much more fun.
Lots of good easy (under 6A) climbs and short approach, but not the place for a 7A climber looking for nice challenges. Also mostly highballs so, if you like 'em go for this sector

Éléphant

Climbing has been limited!

NEWS OCTOBER 2018!!
The actual Èlèphant boulder, the first block you see when walking in to the area. The one looking like an elephant has a ban to climb on it right now. There is a risk that the entire boulder will collapse! Please do not climb on this one until further notice, it's dangerous!!

The rock at Éléphant is softer than in Fontainebleau usually. Please wait that it dries completely after the rain or you risk pulling holds off, or destroying the surface so the rock starts to "sand". It's recommended to let the rock dry for 48-72 hours after rain.
