Highlights

* Develop your mountaineering skills with an IFMGA-qualified team.

* Surround yourself in the stunning Italian mountainside.

Description

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.

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 🏼🏼🏼

Really great moments spent together with Cris (member of Roberto’s crew) who led us through a beautiful canyon close to Luca in the Garfagna region! It is really nice to visit a valley by going down a torrent and rappelling, jumping, tobogganing or swimming! It is also a very fresh activity to escape from the summer heat of Tuscany! Cris is very professional and very kind! I really recommend this activity to everyone! No need to be an expert to have fun down there!
