Description

Join me for some fun verti-hiking and scrambling in Beez (Wallonia)!

Verti-hiking combines classic hiking with rock climbing techniques to be safe on the rocks. This includes walking roped, easy rock climbing, scrambling and descent abseiling.

This great discipline will allow you to live an exceptional adventure thanks to the aerial ambiance as well as the original itineraries. We will be near Namur, in an ideal location. In fact, the Beez rocks are one of the most renown rock climbing destinations in Belgium. The massif is in a remarkable forest, and the views of the Meuse valley are truly beautiful.

I particularly like guiding this verti-hiking program because:
– The green setting has beautiful views over the Meuse valley
– It’s possible to combine it with hiking, abseiling, aerial traverses and easy rock climbing
– Access to the site and parking are easy.

We can leave for a full day, or for a half-day (the latter only during weekdays).

If you want to combine the trip with rock climbing, you can learn more about rock climbing in Beez here. If you prefer to combine it with via ferrata, what about Grands Malades? And another fantastic destination for verti-hiking is at the Calanques, in France.

Tempted to try this fun activity? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request! I would be happy to guide you there!

About the guide

guide profile img

I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
