Courmayeur in the Aosta valley of Italy is a fantastic place to enjoy some thrilling rock climbing. And on this full day course, the focus will be on teaching you introductory level techniques. Thus making this trip is ideal for beginners, who want to enter the world of outdoor rock climbing.

During this day long course, a lot of attention will be paid to the basics. Our focus will be teaching you the skills necessary to begin your journey scaling various rock walls, from the smallest to the largest. And, of course, our number one item on the agenda will be safety because if you don’t learn how to climb safely, you should not be rock climbing.

We will spend time teaching you how to properly use the top rope and basic climbing techniques, while helping you learn how to minimize any fears you may have. Hence ensuring that you are comfortable on the rocks. This will enable you to concentrate more on proper climbing.

Our guides want you to enjoy rock climbing. We want you to have a great time in an activity that people around the world adore. However, we believe the best way to enjoy something is to learn how to do it properly and safely. And we also think that learning to do it in a place as beautiful as Courmayeur, with the amazing Mont Blanc mountain in clear view, only adds to the fun!

So if you want to spend a day learning how to rock climb, send us a request, come to Courmayeur and let us teach you.

There is also a 2 day option of this course as well.

What people are saying about -PeaksHunter



Hi, good service from explore share and peaks hunter, only some miscommunication on 2 or 3 days program, due to bad communication between you both. The guide was OK, friendly although non very experienced in the practice of pédagogie and communication, especially before couloir des Goûter s, there can be better briefing on security and also in general on the whole expedition. But he can grow by learning some coaching lessons. We did not do the final ascension due to bad weather, a proposal and financial compensation for 2nd attempt would have been welcome.6/10.can do better.



Claudio is a great guide. He was careful to select objectives that matched our ability, and showed us a great time in beautiful Valpelline. Bravo.



Rolando was a great guide, super nice person... what else?



Great experience all over. The guides Rolando, Ellis and Claudio were very professional and nice. I always felt safe and the route was amazing. Good food and lodging also.



Although the weather wasn't the best on the day of our backcountry skiing trip, it was still the highlight of our stay in Courmayeur. Alberto was very helpful and overall an excellent guide. We highly recommend Alberto for any one in need of a backcountry skiing guide in Courmayeur.
