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.

Super semaine avec Sébastien et Guillaume. Très partant pour refaire un stage!!!



July, 2015

Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.



April, 2015

It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.



February, 2015

Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.



May, 2014

Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier



May, 2014

Sebastien was very professional in guiding us to the top of Mont Blanc! Great atmosphere within the group thanks to his great character. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to clim the Mont Blanc, no matter his level. Thanks again, Sebastien!



May, 2014

Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
