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.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

 

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?
