    If you’re longing for a new challenge, this adrenaline-filled day will be perfect for you! This ice climbing initiation day is also suited to those who already have some experience but want to take it slow in the beginning of the season.

    This 1-day course at the Ecrins in the Hautes Alpes will give you the chance to enjoy the mountains in a new and different way. The terrain here is perfect for you to give your first ice climbing steps, while taking in the wonderful landscape as you ascend on frozen waterfalls.

    Join me and we will practice ascent and security techniques together. Additionally, we will learn how to use all the necessary equipment.

    Although quite uncommon, ice climbing is available to almost everyone. You just need to be in good physical condition. I’ll take care of the rest!

    I can take a maximum of 4 people on this 1-day outing. Also, you can contact me if you want to arrange a 2-day course.

    I will take photos and video footage of this incredible experience and share them with you!

    I am an IFMGA-certified mountain guide and passionate about the mountains and the outdoors! I’ve guided clients around the area for many years and will be delighted to introduce you to ice climbing.

    If you’ve never tried ice climbing before, this is the chance you’ve been waiting for. Contact me and we’ll make plans together. You’ll have the time of your life!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
    I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.

    What People are Saying about Robin Revest

     

    Climbing w Robin in the Gorges Verdon area was a dream come true. Robin is a fun guide to be with. He\'s very knowledgeable of the routes very safe in his practice and a very strong climber who makes it look easy. We did 2 long multi pitch routes that make me want to come back again and bring my friends.

    Avec Robin, j\'ai eu la chance de faire l\'ascension du Mont-Blanc depuis le Nid d\'Aigle. Il a su s\'adapter à ma demande qui était de faire l\'AR en une journée. Chose parfaitement exécutée. De plus il propose le prêt du matériel. Je recommande vivement, en plus d\'être professionnel et pédagogue il est super sympa !

    The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn\'t have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

    The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn\'t have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!
