The WBF Mentors are Festival Volunteers who kindly share their extensive Fontainebleau climbing experience with other Participants. Please note this is informal mentorship as traditionally practiced within the climbing community. Mentors are not climbing instructors and their role is not professional. As a thank you for their time and commitment, Mentors receive a free Festival Pass. We invite you to apply to become a Mentor here.
