Spend a night on a portaledge on this exciting rock climbing tour in Brévent, in Chamonix, with Mathis, an experienced aspirant mountain guide. An adventure for the brave!
May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
I invite you to join me on a unique an exciting experience: rock climbing with a night on a portaledge, hanging from the rock! If you have an adventurous spirit, come with me on this 2-day guided rock climbing tour in Brévent.
The Brévent Peak lies in Chamonix. It's a mountain in the Aiguilles Rouges range of the French Prealps.
I know that sleeping on a portaledge might sound risky, but I assure you it's very safe. I've slept many nights hanging from a rock! It's an unforgettable experience to sleep there, with no one around. Also, we will enjoy spectacular views of all the Mount Blanc range from there.
We have the option of just sleeping there: going down from the top of the Brévent and install the portaledge not far from the top, or in the middle of the wall. Or we can either climb up from the bottom of the wall and sleep in the midddle. Then, with this option, the day after we would either abseil down or climb up.
Also, it's possible to join this tour with no climbing experience.
If you want to go somewhere else or if the conditions at Brévent are not good, we can experience the same on Arête des Cosmiques or in Annecy, above the lake. These 2 spots are also amazing for such climbing adventure.
So are you in for such an exciting climb in Chamonix? Then send me a request and we will start planning this adventure in the Brévent together. I also offer a guided climb to the Aiguille du Tour, check it out.

It was a great climbing day on almost a vertical rock about 70 meters high. Willy is the best guide I ever met in my life, and without him I wouldn't make it.
Rebecca and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Stephane and his wife. They were amazing guides.
We had a great experience with Willy Viez in Wallonie. He shared a lot of useful knowledge with us about alpine rock climbing, especially about lead climbing. His pointers and real life examples turned out to be essential on the following day when we tried to climb an easy route on our own (no quick draws were left behind). Willy assisted us in a way that resulted in great personal accomplishments for the day and he surely helped us to feel more at ease around real rocks. We are very happy with this adventure that has a long lasting after effect.
Really enjoyed our day rock climbing in Les Calanques. Great routes and our guide was prepared, very flexible in terms of what we’d like to do and which levels he could do with us. The communication beforehand was a little unclear since I expected an email and didn’t quite get that I’d have to access the web application of explore share. Nothing major, just could be explained clearer in the email.

We had a great day with Ivan in Fontainebleau. He was so knowledgeable about the area and its history, and about warming up for effective climbing. We had a lot of fun and climbed some very cool boulders despite the very cold weather.
My daughter has had a fantastic time at with the horses this week, perfectly organised by Explore-share. We are so grateful to Gauthier for making it all a fantastic experience, thank you!! We will be back.
I booked a private shinrin yoku session with Explore-Share, but unfortunately their guide was injured and couldn't do it. Gauthier had been very helpful, quick to communicate and agreed to work with another guide he'd never met. All went well. My first forest bath guided by Magda was powerful and I appreciated the experience so much. She was calm, reassuring, and led all the invitations smoothly and sensitively. An eye-opening experience that will be fondly remembered.
The lift to the via ferrata des Evettes was closed so we did the via ferrata de curalla in Passy. Was a great day!
Our guide, Claire, was very friendly, knowing and responsive and helped us to dive into an outdoor bouldring for the first time - exactly what we were looking for

Yesterday was amazing. Olivier is a world class climber and has a natural ability to quickly assess my level and coach me to exceed what I thought I could do. He was very focused on making sure I was safe. Climbing with Olivier yesterday has had a deep impact on my life as a climber. An excellent climbing guide!
Annulé pour la météo
We had a fantastic time with our guide and the horses at the stables in Les Houches. Everything was perfectly organised - thank you - we ill be back.
We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!
