Its Feb. Time for another dose of the forest, the month is short, I was away in pedriza bouldering, But also I took a bad fall off Fluide Magnetique and twisted my ankle which put me out for over week, thanks to Chris for stepping up to the mark and climbing it for me.

March Dose of Font 2011 from neil hart on Vimeo.
March Dose is here, I have been very ill this month with glandular fever, so there nearly was no dose, but a miraculous recovery and amazing conditions meant we could get out and climb some amazing problems, With Easter on its way, most of you guys will head for the busy crags of the Franchard and such like, So my video this month, you have a bunch of routes in isatis from 6c to 7c
And for those who want to escape the crowds you have a load of absolute classics in areas you would never dream of going, trust me all the routes are well worth the visit

A hot very humid month in the forest, Its Harvest time in the forest and it’s also been alive with so many ticks and snakes. But the climbing has been great fun. Be careful out there, check yourself every night for ticks, and be very careful were you sit to eat lunch, apremont has seen lots of vipers this year, especially around science friction area, and they are aggressive...
Sorry About some of the footage, I finally got round to buying a DSLR but I really don’t know how to use it, so any tips would be great, Most of the footage I hade to doctor with magic bullet to make it watchable, Hopefully over the next few months the footage will get better as I learn to use the camera better

August, the summer, hot sunny and humid, despite this there is still some very good climbing to be had, A short month this month due to the vacations and lots of friends being around.
Its all about getting out early, for our send of symbiose which is very sloppy, we were there at 9am which is not that early but early enough before the sun hits the rocks.
Still playing with the new camera, so some of the footage aint great, but I am learning

Well its that time of the month already, September has been so hot this year, with temps into the 30's most days, and also most days have been really humid, making climbing in the forest difficult, unless you can get out early, :)
This month I have been exploring the forest, cleaning and trying new boulders with friends, footage soon (promise) I have also started the siege on a couple of projects, but for now enjoy some really good 7's
There is one of the new routes in this month’s video, gege's super heavy, amazing wall in the conquibus, just the right height for a boulder, little crimps, but nice ones that don’t cut, a must for people to go do, 4 stars for sure.
I have also had a friend, Haroun, the master of camera work, giving me a few a tips on how to use my camera better, so I think my footage has improved a lot since last month.

Mister dynamite was a real pain for us, we spent hours on it, a small 7b dyno, 3 of the best jumpers in the forest got spanked good and proper on this, but success finally.

November Dose for you all to enjoy, this month there has a been lots of discussions on the forums about ethics in bleau, and the way chalk and pads have been misused, my videos taking the brunt of it all. I tried not to get involved but personal attacks made it hard not to.
Basically it boils down to some simple facts, people putting tick marks all over the blocs and not cleaning them off after climbing, also stacking pads to start routes.
So please respect the forest, and leave it the way you found it, if you see tick marks on boulders please try and clean then off.
Bouldering is becoming very popular and the forest has seen more climbers than ever this year and it is only going to get worse. We need to enjoy the forest and preserve it for future generation so please read this and enjoy the forest.
• Clean off your tick marks
• Don’t misuse chalk
• Take your litter home
• Dig a hole for the toilet
• Don’t chip the rocks
• Respect others around you
• But most of all, respect the forest
So that said, back to the climbing, the conditions have been great in the forest this month, but I have not, 2 weeks off with man flu :) but some great climbs none the less, I think its going to be a good winter.
