Description

Enjoy this stunning island from above with this intro to mountaineering course in Corsica!

This course is designed to give you a taste of different snow, ice and mixed routes. Those who wish to will even be learn to lead in no time. And you’ll be able to do all this while enjoying the incredible Corsican landscape!

Corsica is one of France’s 13 regions. It is also the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, after Sicily, Sardinia and Cyprus. A single chain of mountains makes up two-thirds of this incredibly beautiful island.

During the course, you’ll learn progression and security ice climbing techniques. We’ll also cover belaying and abseiling on mixed terrain. If conditions allow, we’ll finish the course with a multi-pitch gully ascent in the Lombarducciu Massif.

Group size is limited to 4 people, both for security reasons and for you to take advantage of the learning experience. The program is very flexible so we’ll be able to adapt to daily conditions.

This mountaineering course in Corsica takes 6 days to complete. It doesn’t require you to have any particular experience. However, a good physical condition and knowledge of basic rock climbing techniques are preferable. I always advise clients to undergo some training before the beginning of the course.

Contact me now and join me on these 6 days of pure fun. This course will be your door to the wonderful world of climbing. And you’ll get to do it in one of the most gorgeous places in the world!
