    Do you dream of ice climbing? Let’s try it together for a weekend, with an initiation climb in the Ecrins Massif?

    During this trip, the goal is to teach you the basic techniques that will allow you to gain autonomy on easy routes.

    On the first day, we will have different workshops. The following day we take a multi-pitch route, applying the techniques that we just learnt.

    Of course I can adapt this 2-day program to suit your wishes and the time you have available.

    We can choose from many different cool sites! From simple cascades of one rope length to very engaged walls with international reputation. For example, we can go to Queyras with Ceillac and Aiguilles, Freissinières, Le Fournel, Cervières or La Grave.

    Depending on the program and requests, I will take up to 4 people. If you are a larger group, I will ask my friend Lionel, UIAGM high mountain guide as well, to join us.

    Additionally, I organise trips for more experienced climbers that wish to improve their skills.

    If you are in the Ecrins Massif region for many days, we can consider combining several winter activities. For example, off-piste ski in a surrounding station, or ski touring.

    Feel free to contact me if you want to know more about it, or if you have made up your mind and you want to arrange a date for this ice climbing tour.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I have followed the arts trail but I have also climbed hard and my passion for the mountain has always led my steps. I grew up in the south, country with generous limestone walls, before I moved to Ecrins. Familiar with the major routes and demanding walls, climbing instructor before being guide, I have to communicate how essential it became in my life…
    The mountain is for me and my friend guide Lionel, a sharing space where the difficulty is not the object, but it’s where we can offer the luxury and curiosity of the beautiful things, simple and useless…
    Come on, shall we make our bags?
