Courmayeur, Italian Alps, 2 Day Rock Climbing Course

Courmayeur, Italian Alps, 2 Day Rock Climbing Course | Italy

Enjoy a 2 day, intro level rock climbing course in Courmayeur, Italy with one of the IFMGA certified member of the Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team.



2 Days

May - Sep



* 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.

Gabriele was a fantastic guide, knew the area well and found so much powder. Thanks so much



Hello Basically I am satisfied with the whole organization, because in the end everything worked as expected, whereby the guide had a big part in the success! Unfortunately, the information regarding equipment was unclear in advance and sometimes varied, which didn't make it any easier for a beginner like me. In general, the flow of information was rather slow, but towards the end it was sufficient and quick. In general, I would recommend that you revise the list of necessary equipment! Above all, it should be clear what the guest has to bring (with a distinction between "must" and "recommended"), what is provided by the organizer and what could be rented if necessary. Of course, this is not easy to accomplish, as the necessary equipment also depends on the conditions. Best wishes and continued success with the organization of ski trips! Martin



Great service. Above and beyond expectations. Abigail went the extra mile to make my trip happen, after hours and at very short notice. It would not have been possible without her. Highly recommended.



Silvia was fantastic in helping get everything set up, from recommending accommodations and buses to organizing the meet-up with my guide. Mateo was a great guide, found the perfect route for my experience and skill level. A truly amazing experience that I didn't think would be possible.



A very well organised trip by both parties, we will define use again for future trips ūüôā
