If you want to embark on a rock climbing adventure but have no experience, or wish to improve your skills, choosing the right course is essential! Join me on this 5-day rock climbing trip in the Provence area in France. And let me teach you all the basics about this wonderful activity or help you improve on your techniques.

The Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur is a region in the southeastern part of France. Located in between the Mediterranean sea and the border with Italy, it offers dazzling sceneries hard to compare. Also, its amazing weather makes it the ideal place for a trip like this one.

This area is well known amongst rock climbers, not only because of its great weather that allows ascents most of the year, but because of its top notch rock! Here we’ll encounter multi-pitch routes, as well as single ones. There are different options for all types of levels and climbers.

Over a period of 5 days we’ll go over all the basics about rock climbing. We will cover things such as climbing movement, strategies, and how to gain confidence when lead climbing. Also, we will cover everything about falls and belay falls. We’ll go over most things about top-rope climbing. Moreover, I’ll focus on different things that can affect your performance, like mental aspects. And of course, we’ll practice and review different outdoor safety rules. Finally, I will make sure to share with you many tips so you can train at home by yourself, such as stretching and fitness exercises.

So whether you want to practice what you already know, perfect your skills, or start from scratch, this course is perfect! Send me a message. It will be my pleasure to guide you across this wonderful place!

    About the Guide

     
     

    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 climbed with Joe and he was amazing! Very knowledgeable about climbing, kept us calm and was very encouraging for our first climb. We are thankful for the skills we learnt and next time we are in Kalymnos we will be seeking Joe\'s assistance again. Thank you very much!
