What people are saying about Rock Climbing | French Pyrenees



Everything went according to plan and our 2 grandchildren were very happy with the experience. many thanks.



Amazing view, amazing guide and an amazing day. Thank you so much Cecilia.



Alfredo has been excellent in terms of guiding us up the mountain even in rainy weather.



Had a very good time with Cecilia at the Cap de Long. It was foggy and supposed to rain the first day, so Cecilia was kind enough to reschedule and pointed out a superb climbing spot to us on the Spanish side of the Pyrenees. Along our multi-pitch route Cecilia showed us how to set up a stand, secure ourselves, rope management and how to belay from the top.



Pau was an all around excellent guide. Would highly recommend climbing with him.
