After nearly 10 years of mountaineering in Chamonix, I decided to dedicate myself to rock climbing.
In 2005, after one year intensive training, he got the french national sport’s instructor certificate for rock climbing (BEES escalade).
I have been exploring the crags of France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and China. I finally decided to set up his climbing school in the island of Kalymnos (Greece). The beautiful landscapes, the endless sunshine and the vast climbing potential of the island convinced me to settle here from my first visit.
Since then, climbers from all over the world came to share his passion and to take avantage of his experience to improve their rock climbing skills. I have opened many new routes both in Kalymnos and Telendos from 4 to 9a. I climb 8a on-sight and red-point up to 8c. I did most of the routes of the island and always has new projects to red point!
We had Mattias for our first day who was amazing, such a cool guy, made the day fun and enjoyable and we learned a lot from him. On our second day we had Tania who was an excellent teacher, very patient and definitely recommend both of them.
We\'ve had a great time climbing with Tania. Yoga in the evenings helped to calm our minds and focus on meditative strategies on the crag. All in all wonderful!
It was all perfect! We have great climbing days in Kalymnos!
