First Time


Would you like to try rock climbing for the first time? We have the perfect opportunity for you. Join us on a 1-day course in the Apuan Alps, in Tuscany, and learn different rock climbing techniques.

During the course, we'll teach you the moves you need to know for a safe use of the rope. We will also go over belaying techniques and the correct way of handling rope, with appropriate material. 

When you practice rock climbing, you also need a good and balanced psychological attitude towards vertical space. Technique and expertise should always be accompanied by safety consciousness. 

In this course, we'ill also teach you movement techniques for a correct body balance, rope handling and knots. Besides, we will put all what we learn into practice, for a safe progression on the wall.

We will start the course on a cliff and then move to the mountain. We'll also teach you how to climb on a mountain route safely and at the same time enjoy a pleasant time in the enchanting scenery of the mountains.

The Apuan Alps offer a wide range of rock climbing possibilities, for beginners and also for more experienced climbers. Most important, the view here are breathtaking!

What people are saying about Prorock



I went climbing with a group organized by Roberto. We went to a crag near Camaiore, it was great!



We had a great experience with Franco (member of Roberto guides' team) who guided us in this trek in Apuan Alps, the Pisanino, which is the highest summit in all this region. The level of difficulty is low while you should be ready to have some vertigos view at some points but we should say the panoramas are so stunning between the Apennines, the Mediterranean sea and the other mountains from Alpi Apuane all around. Franco has been so kind to explain in details the other treks of the region we will not miss to do next time !


Franco was a very professional guide. If you are not familiar with the trails in the Apuan Alps I highly recommend you hire this company - for ease of mind and safety. I am a former mountain guide in the United States.



I had an amazing time!



Fabio and Valeria were our guides on the day. We were a family with kids aged between 10 and 14years old. Fabio was very safety conscious and passionate about the sport. Very friendly and we felt like a day out with friends. The climbing spot was amazing. Great view, nice rocks.
