Not specified

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!

I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.

Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.



April, 2015

It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.



February, 2015

Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.



May, 2014

Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier

Sebastien was very professional in guiding us to the top of Mont Blanc! Great atmosphere within the group thanks to his great character. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to clim the Mont Blanc, no matter his level. Thanks again, Sebastien!

Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
