Description

Aid rock climbing is an activity that had its glory days before the “free climbing” development in the 70’s and 80’s. However, nowadays it is becoming popular again everywhere in Europe. The main goal of aid rock climbing is to progress using all aid means available. Among them nuts, studs, roosters drop and of course… aiders!

During this day or two-days trip I will help you progress on aiders and place mobile points through which you’ll be able to move autonomously. You’ll also learn how to estimate the reliability of the anchors and the strength of the rocks.

This aid rock climbing program can take place in Marche-les-Dames, Grands-Malades, Pont à Lesse or Freyr. If you want to join me on this course you should feel comfortable climbing on equipped walls.

If you would like to be part of this adventure please send me a request to book the trip. It will be my pleasure to help you achieve new rock climbing goals! Are you looking for more rock climbing options in Wallonia? I also guide single- and multi-pitch routes in Chaleux, Freyr, Durnal and more!

The course can be 1 or 2 days long.

About the guide

guide profile img

I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
