Highlights

 
  • Spend 2 days climbing on beautiful cliffs near Courmayeur.

  • See the beauty of the Aosta valley in the Alps of Italy.

  • Learn several important intro level rock climbing skills and techniques.

 
On this 2 day intro level rock climbing course, we would like to teach you as much as possible about rock climbing. Our location will be around Courmayeur in the beautiful Aosta valley of the Italian Alps.

Depending on your skill level and other factors, there are different places we can choose to conduct the course. Some of those places include Val Ferret or Val Veny. Both of these locations are beautiful, offering great views, and also have great walls to climb on.

During this 2 day course, we will focus on teaching you the basic skills and techniques necessary for proper and safe rock climbing.

The beginning of the course will focus on top rope technique. This will involve a rope hanging from a fixed anchor point above the cliff. There will be no risk of falling during this part, which will also assist you in overcoming any fears you may have. From there, we will focus on basic climbing techniques as you work up the wall. Those techniques include exploiting the center of mass, proper use of your feet, optimal leg hoist and basic legs progression. After that, we will focus on safety chain. This will involve maneuvers while resting, protection methods, fall factor and progression as climb leader.

On the following day, you will take much of what you have learned on the first day and put them into practice as you try to climb the selected cliff as a leader.

Learning to rock climb on the cliffs of Courmayeur is a great opportunity for anybody who loves rock climbing to learn some new skills, or improve upon the ones they already have. To join us on this 2 day trip, just send us a request.

There is also a 1 day version of this trip as well.

I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you. André and Vânia
