Description

I put together this climbing course in the Pyrenees, exploring the rocky walls of two fantastic destinations in the mountain range. The first weekend we will go to the Gripp valley, in France, and the second one to Mallos de Riglos, in Spain.

This course lasts 4 days, to be divided into two weekends (that can or not be consecutive). We will get the most of each location. Besides enjoying the varied natural landscape, we will have very different terrains to practice in.

This course is perfect if you already practice climbing occasionally (or often!) in climbing rooms and you wish to go further in a natural site, practicing multi-pitch climbing.

During this course you will acquire a solid technical base for multi-pitch rock climbing. You need to know how to climb leading on single-pitch, and how to belay a leader.

The final objective of the course is to climb the Mallos de Riglos autonomously during the second weekend.

We will work on:
– Belaying in an equipped multi-pitch route
– Belaying the second in the rops
– Chaining the pitches
– Installing an abseil
– Abseiling down self-belayed

The first weekend we will go to the Gripp valley, in France. The first day we will do climbing school to learn the techniques above. On the second day we will put it into practice at a multi-pitch route of the Lheris.

The second weekend we will meet in Riglos, in Spain. This weekend we will refresh the learnt techniques and practice in varied routes, so that you can gain autonomy for your future climbing adventures. We will climb Puro, with its 10 pitches and cramped top!

Did this climbing course sound interesting? Then book this trip and join me in the Pyrenees for two fantastic weekends! And I also offer a 3-day climbing program in Riglos.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
