For 2 days, I would like to guide you through a single-pitch rock climbing course in Wallonia, Belgium. The course will take place on the Grands-Malades and Anhee, which are located near Namur and Dinant.

Throughout this 2-day course you will learn plenty of important skills and techniques that are crucial to safe, fun and successful single pitch rock climbing. Each day of this 2-day course will begin at 10:00 am and end at 5:00 pm. Throughout that time we will cover topics that include cliff climbing, top rope climbing, self-assured abseiling, security instructions for via ferrata, equipment use, and much more. I will also offer you tips and advice whenever the opportunity arises.

In order to participate on this trip, you should have prior classroom practice and be able to climb at a minimum 5a level. You should also be at least 12 years of age.

Rock climbing is a thrilling, fun and invigorating activity. However, it is an activity that requires a lot of practice and education. As a result, courses like this one are crucial for people who want to progress safely in their rock climbing ambitions. To join me on this single-pitch course in Wallonia, all you have to do is send me a request.

I also offer a 2-day multi-pitch climbing course at Yvoir and Beez, which you can enjoy here.

About the Guide

 
 

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!
