If you are a climb lover, join Sebastien, an IFMGA certified mountain guide, to an amazing rock climbing course in a worldwide destination: Bavella Needles.

Mont Cinto

5 Days

May, Jun, Sep, Oct


If you are a climb lover, you can not miss this incredible opportunity to discover one of the most prestigious destinations for rock climbing: Bavella.

Bavella is a highlight of the Corsica mountains. This beautiful massif comprises seven towers or needles. Indeed, the highest point is Punta di l’Acellu with 1588m high.

As I mentioned before, this is one of the most popular sites for rock climbing. It has dramatic and large rocky walls of red granite combined with beautiful pine trees. So that, you can enjoy from one side the mountain pass, and the other side the forest.

Additionally, the views from each tower are really amazing. But, I have to mention, that the most beautiful and breathtaking panoramas can be seen at the Bavella Pass.

So, I proposed a 5-day program combining different climbing spots in a large variety of playgrounds, always depending on your abilities, wishes and also the weather conditions.

Some points that you will learn in this interesting rock climbing course in Bavella:
  • How to make a safe rappelling,

  • Also how to place effective guards on the lengths as well as do reliable relays,

  • Climb to the top on levels 5a to 5c.

  • And of course, gain more autonomy in the climbing.

As a final point, you fill find below an example of a detailed itinerary of this kind of trip. However, I can always modify the program in order to meet your expectations.

I invite you to contact me if you have any interest in discover this amazing place with its rocks. It will be a pleasure for me to guide you and help you to live an unforgettable rock climbing experience. Do not miss this great opportunity to improve you climb skills! We will share a great moment together… I am waiting for you!
