Description

I invite you to join me for a day in Yvoir, Belgium, to refresh your rock climbing knowledge and improve your skills. It will be the perfect occasion to regain confidence before going on a challenging multi-pitch climbing trip.

We will meet in Yvoir, in Namur. This is a great rock climbing destination in Wallonia, Belgium. The terrain is varied, which provides a good playground for beginners as well as intermediate climbers. This group program is designed for people with prior rock climbing experience, in particular multi-pitch.

This is a perfect opportunity to review safety techniques and climbing skills specific to multi-pitch rock climbing. All in a beautiful natural setting, with great views over the Meuse valley. The limestone walls are first class!

During this 1-day program we will focus on different topics, including:
– How to do your own relay
– How to ensure the second
– Multi-pitch enchainment
– Alternate leads
– Abseiling

Besides, we will cover more general situations like avoiding classic mistakes and problematic situations. And of course we will have some time to practice particular aspects of the practice you might be interested in improving.

Meet me in Yvoir to enjoy this workshop! Please send me a request to book the trip if you are interested. And if you are looking for a single-pitch rock climbing workshop, check out this one in Grands-Malades.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
