Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Come join me on this 5-day rock climbing course and discover the joys and challenges of high mountain climbing. For safety reasons, and for you to profit from the learning experience, a maximum of two people per group is allowed.
The Aiguilles Rouges offer beautiful rock walls but also allow climbers to enjoy some autonomy. Being in very good physical condition and having considerable climbing experience (5c level) are pre-requisites for the trip.
Moreover, during this 5-day rock climbing course we’ll follow in Rébuffat’s footsteps. In the French Pre-Alps and opposite to the Mont Blanc Massif, the Aiguilles Rouges offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape. They are also home to Chamonix’s main climbing crags, made famous by mountaineer Gaston Rébuffat.
This course runs every week, starting on Mondays, from June to September. During this 5-day course you will learn to climb long routes (over 200 meters). You will also have the chance to learn and practice your high mountain climbing skills in complete safety.
On day 1, we will meet at Chamonix and spend the morning on a granite wall. On day 2, we will take on the Aiguilles Rouges great classic: the Aiguille de la Glière. Day 3 is reserved for the Perroux route on Aiguille de l’Index, where you will climb first rope. On days 4 and 5 we will climb the Cocher Cochon route and the Rieffel/Fournier route on the Pain de Sucre.
I am a IFMGA/UIAGM-certified mountain guide based in La Clusaz and Chamonix. Apart from French, I also speak Spanish and English.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to practice your rock climbing skills and discover the high mountain in the beautiful Aiguilles Rouges! This 5-day course will open the door to new climbing experiences and will prepare you for great challenges. Contact me and book your place!

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 :)

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