Description

This 4-day big wall rock climbing course at the Gorges de la Jonte will give you the chance to work on your technical skills while enjoying the area's unusual landscape!

With its scenic cliffs and forested slopes, La Jonte is not as popular as other rock climbing spots in southern France. However, its unusual rock formations are slowly but steadily earning it a place among rock climbers' "must-go" lists!

If you've never climbed a big wall before, this is your chance to test yourself in the company of a professional. This course will also be useful to those wishing to review key moves in the beginning of the season. And those wishing to challenge themselves on more difficult walls will also profit from the experience.

La Jonte offers hundreds of different routes to choose from. I'll adapt the itinerary depending on your level and physical condition. But don't worry: I can guarantee you won't get bored!

We will meet at the Village du Rozier, a charming little village that is the door to La Jonte. First, we will assess participants' level on a rather easy big wall. In the afternoon, we will attempt a multi-pitch wall. On days 2 to 4, we'll visit some of the area's great classics. I will propose different options and we'll attempt increasingly difficult walls!

Please note I can take from 2 to 4 people on this big wall rock climbing course. You'll either be staying in a mobile home (for a group of 4) or at the Village du Rozier camping site (for 3 and under).

I offer a similar course at Gorges du Verdon. Check it out as well!

Join me on these 4 days of pure fun! You'll get to practice your rock climbing skills in the company of an IFMGA-certified guide. I can promise you will see big improvements. Contact me now and we'll start planning our trip to La Jonte!

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.

Avec Robin, j'ai eu la chance de faire l'ascension du Mont-Blanc depuis le Nid d'Aigle. Il a su s'adapter à ma demande qui était de faire l'AR en une journée. Chose parfaitement exécutée. De plus il propose le prêt du matériel. Je recommande vivement, en plus d'être professionnel et pédagogue il est super sympa !

Robin was everything you want in a guide: competent, congenial, and careful though seemingly casual. He taught my daughter to belay and allowed me to lead. He was wonderfully patient in letting us figure out a problem rather than tell us how to solve it. We had a wonderful Day 1 tackling short pitches, as I had requested. Day 2, however, was a terrible disappointment. I had asked that we spend it on a multi pitch route, and had high hopes for a challenging day out as my daughter had told Robin on Day 1 she would not be joining us. Since the forecast included rain later, Robin and I met at 7:45am. But the route, while multi pitch, was more walking/scrambling than climbing, so that we made it back to our cars in less than 2 hours. I was shocked to learn we were finished for the day. Given what I paid, this was poor value. I would not be able to recommend Explore-Share as a result.

Nice climb. Run into a bad weather at gorges du Verdon. Was able to change to another climb near Cassis. The view is pretty. Explore share response is quick.
