Description

Are you looking for a nice way to warm up before a rock climbing adventure? During this 1-day workshop in Grands-Malades we will focus on reviewing all the climbing techniques necessary to be safe and enjoy lead climbing in single-pitch routes.

To join this group program you need to have prior rock climbing experience. In particular, you must have practiced lead climbing in single-pitch routes before. It will be a full day dedicated to improve your skills and review climbing techniques.

We will be in the beautiful natural setting of Grands-Malades, near Namur, Wallonia. This is a great region in Belgium for rock climbing, and very conveniently located. We will meet at 10AM and spend the full day practicing until 5PM.

I will take up to 6 people with me to ensure everyone gets enough opportunities to review their personal doubts. During the day we will cover safety techniques for the climber and the belayer, top-roping techniques, how to abseil down with a belay…  And we can add more things you might be interested in practicing.

If you are planning a challenging rock climbing trip, I highly recommend taking the time to review climbing and safety techniques. To join this workshop, simply send me a request!

I also offer a 2-day self-rescue techniques for rock climbing course in Grands-Malades which you can check out here.

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!
