Elevate your climbing skills with the IFMGA-certified Prorock Outdoor Team on the Mont Blanc massif, and be surrounded in the stunning Italian mountainside.
Head to the heart of the beautiful Mont Blanc massif to learn mountaineering techniques, including how to conquer glaciers, mixed terrain and high altitudes.
With our 2-day base at the Torino refuge, our main objective is to build confidence and teach participants the essentials, including glacier crossings, mixed routes and ridges, and steep gullies. All this is in order to make participants independent on the mountainside.
While keeping the guide ratio low, you can expect the care and attention needed in order to develop your mountaineering skills.
Reserve your place amid the high mountain of the Mont Blanc massif, and upgrade your mountaineering techniques, build confidence, and experience the wild beauty of the Italian alpine mountainside.

Our guide chose an excellent route for us to multi pitch climb. He was prompt with picking us up at train station. Safe driver and informative about the local area we climbed in. His English was good and we felt safe during this whole experience. Highly recommend!
We had one of our best days in Italy rock climbing with Franco! He was super nice and we were able to climb everything we wanted, plus the views were amazing. Highly recommend :)
Cristiano is a super experienced and friendly guide! Mt Procinto's was a great first via ferrata experience for the whole family, including kids 7 and 10 yrs old. Thank you!
I had so much fun, Franco is a very experienced and knowlegeable guide and I loved the challenges he gave me the option to pursue. No pressure, no fear, and maybe next time I will be able to sport lead on limestone. Beautiful location and views!
We had the most fun and incredible rock climbing day at Celsa with Carlo and Louise! We had so much fun and loved getting to know our guides! Carlo was a great instructor and you could tell he was very passionate about rock climbing and wanted us to excel and encouraged us! It was an amazing day!!! Highly recommend!!!!
We wanted to try out via ferrate already for a long time. This was our first one and we were going with kids (9 and 11 y.o.) so we decided to find a guide that could accompany us. Pasquale was a perfect guide - experienced, interesting and caring. We felt safe and had a great time! Thank you!

Great experience overall - we went to the Apuan alps where we were able to climb multiple routes with a fantastic view all with our guide Franco - very fun and memorable experience and would definitely recommend
Really great climbing experience near Cinque Terre. The location was beautiful and our guide was fantastic. 1/2 of our group was experienced and 1/2 was not. Our guide made sure to find an area to accommodate everyone's abilities. Would highly recommend this experience!
I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼
An amazing experience, and brilliant for first time climbing experience. Enough to get heart rates going!! Fabio our guide was excellent, felt very safe, plus his English was amazing! Would do it again!
Franco was a very professional guide. If you are not familiar with the trails in the Apuan Alps I highly recommend you hire this company - for ease of mind and safety. I am a former mountain guide in the United States.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
