What people are saying about Sébastien



Excellent course. Sebastien tailored the content to my goals and was a great and thorough instructor. A very enjoyable and educational course.


Gained skills and confidence in ice climbing, as well as some mountaineering skills. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and supportive. Look forward to working with Seb again.



Thanks for all your help!



I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.



Sebastien was a great guide! Thank you :)
