Je travaille avec Marion depuis 4ans sur l’encadrement du groupe d’alpinisme au féminin GAF74 du Comité départemental des clubs alpins et de montagne de Haute Savoie. Les membres du GAF74 sont toujours heureuse de pouvoir être encadré par une guide telle que Marion, une femme qui a su ouvrir les portes de certaines formation de la montagne aux femmes. Un vrai exemple qu’elles sont heureuses de suivre et dont elles sont fières de s’inspirer grâce à ces journées de formation.
