Description

Rock climbing on natural sites is a spectacular experience. From the views to the thrill of scaling a wall that has stood for thousands of years it is definitely something worth doing if you ever have the chance. And on this full day trip, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, you will get to climb on several different cliffs in Wallonia, Belgium.

The spots we will be focusing on during this day long trip are Pont-a-Lesse, Grand Malades and Goyet. Each one of these spots will definitely impress and satisfy you. They are all unique and beautiful in their own special way.

This is a beginner level course. We will be focusing on climbing fundamentals that are crucial for safe and successful climbing. Some of what we will cover includes safety techniques, sign language, abseiling, food placement, grip, balance and much more. And because this trip is meant for beginners, the only experience you require is some prior indoor wall climbing. Finally, the minimum age for this trip is only 10 years. Thus making it ideal for families to enjoy.

While rock climbing may not be the first thing you think about when thinking about Belgium, there are nonetheless several great spots, particularly in Wallonia. If you are new to natural rock climbing and would like to enjoy those spots, while learning several important climbing skills, just send me a request.

There is also a half-day version of this trip that will take you to different spots in Wallonia.

Accommodation

There are comfortable accommodation options around the Wallonia area that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

guide profile img

I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
