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!
