Description

If you’re an admirer of the mountains but are yet to climb the steep rocks, then a via ferrata is the ideal introduction for you.

Via ferratas are climbing made easy. With the aid of ladders, steel cables and aerial walkways fixed into the rock, the steep ascents are more manageable in order to conquer new heights.

Today a great way to conquer the steep mountains, via ferratas emerged from the dark chapters of history during the First World War. Several via ferratas were constructed in the Dolomites section of the Alps to aid soldiers move quicker and more conveniently when navigating the rocky terrain.

Despite the steely assistance of the cables and footholds, the climb is still steep and presents challenges. The exhalation of the climb will guarantee that the adrenaline will course through your body the whole trip.

And make sure to take regular moments to appreciate the majestic alpine mountainside around the town of Chamonix.

Whether you want to hike solo or with you family, this half-day trip is ideal for you. And as a fully-qualified IFMGA guide based in Chamonix, you’ll benefit well from my knowledge of the area, and familiarity with the mountains.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm an IFMGA guide from Romania and a member of the Eastern European Mountain Guide Association.

With two decades and a half spent doing mountain sports and nearly a decade guiding or teaching climbing my work and passion has taken me from the mountains and crags near home to the greater ranges.

Please feel free to get in touch for trips involving trekking, climbing, skiing or expeditions. I also run climbing courses (rock, ice, mixed and alpine), ski touring and winter safety workshops as well as self rescue in vertical terrain clinics.

Regular climbs from sport to multi-pitch and alpine terrain are charged on per-day rates plus expenses while expeditions are charged on a flat rate based on the size of the group and the destination.

I have a very strict policy on guide-to-guest ratios for all types of terrain and these are clearly explained prior to engagement. For multi pitch climbs it is usually 1:1 and it never exceeds 1:2. For single pitch venues (especially on instructional outings) it never exceeds 1:4. Higher ratios are possible with the hiring of additional guides and only following prior arrangements. For treks and ski tours the ratios are more generous but depending on the terrain and/or the group’s experience.

I am comfortable in using for guiding purposes the following languages: English, Romanian, French and Italian and for teaching purposes English and Romanian.
