Description

Bavella became so well-known that it turned Corsica into a “must go” destination for rock climbers around the world.

Even though rock climbing has a very short history on this beautiful island, it has been very dynamic. In fact, there are many spots that offer a huge variety of styles and have become instant classics!

You’ll get to climb from the coast to the highest peaks on the island, and always under a beautiful Mediterranean sun. You’ll also enjoy its high-quality rock and its incredible landscapes. Join me and discover the beautiful and wild Bavella massif!

This 6-day program is also an opportunity to gain more autonomy and to discover some of the more traditional routes on the island. I’m a local guide and will take you to all the best spots.

Want to discover this wonderful place and its amazing rocks? It will be a pleasure for me to guide you and help you discover the secrets of this incredible site. So contact me now!

I also offer rock climbing day trips in Corsica. Check them out if you’re short on time!

About the guide

Certified mountain guide UIAGM / IFMGA
I work with Manu, a good friend of mine...
We are both rock climbing instructors and certified mountain leaders. I shared with Manu happy and doubtful moments, building a professional future with a passionate focus on the mountain and the guide role. An open vision over the world, where our competences, knowledge and curiosity are at our client’s service for one day or for life.
The agency we founded together is the natural outcome of our profound complicity. People think we are cousins or brothers. We are just friends, and lucky to be so, because our children are in love: as in love as you can be at 8 years old!
We are both lucky to live in Corsica, this unknown mountain where climbers, mountaineers and skiers still feel like pioneers. This mountain is our playground and our office.
Curious and open to the world, we also organize each year trips to faraway places to see what other mountains and people can give to us, and what we can learn from them.
Ice in the Equator and Patagonia, Spanish, Jordanian or American rocks, snow in the Carpathians, Norway ot the Caucasus. We love the mountain in all its forms and every time we reach a summit we want to climb the neighbouring summit and find what is hiding behind it.
