Description

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!

So if you'd like to try rock climbing, don't hesitate to contact us! You can send us a request and we can start making plans for this course in the Apuan Alps. Also, if you want to extend the course duration, we can organize a 2-day course.

Really great climbing experience near Cinque Terre. The location was beautiful and our guide was fantastic. 1/2 of our group was experienced and 1/2 was not. Our guide made sure to find an area to accommodate everyone's abilities. Would highly recommend this experience!

I got to spend two amazing days climbing on two of the most beautiful climbing places you could think of. The guides were fantastic! Everything was well prepared, they took good care of everything and everyone, making sure we all felt safe and satisfied at all times. So if you want to start climbing as a beginner in one of the top 20 climbing spots of the world, or if you already have climbing experience and simply want to improve your technique or skills. Or if you’re already an experienced climber and you simply are looking for super professional climbing partners, this is what you have to go for! I feel like I made friends and will definitely come back next year to climb again with these lovely guys 🏼🏼🏼

Really great moments spent together with Cris (member of Roberto’s crew) who led us through a beautiful canyon close to Luca in the Garfagna region! It is really nice to visit a valley by going down a torrent and rappelling, jumping, tobogganing or swimming! It is also a very fresh activity to escape from the summer heat of Tuscany! Cris is very professional and very kind! I really recommend this activity to everyone! No need to be an expert to have fun down there!

My daughter (11 years old) and I had a nice day of sport climbing is Sant Anna above Camaiore with a great guide from Roberto's team. It was a good place to learn and do some more challenging routes as the day progressed. The views are also fantastic. Can't wait to return next year and also spend a night at a rifugio!
