Description

Come and learn mountaineering with me for a day or two in Chamonix. We will have some rock and ice climbing sessions. We can also plan the ascent of an easy peak, Aiguille du Tour for example. My objective will be to teach you the basics so you can consider mountain ascents in the future.

It is important to progress safely. Learning basic techniques is essential before embarking on a mountaineering tour.

Safety manoeuvres, handling a rope, belaying, walking with crampons and ice axe, familiarization with the emptiness feeling… These are different topics that we will cover together. Everything will be done in an idyllic setting, the Mont Blanc range.

The time you will spend learning all of this will be a guarantee of safety and pleasure during your future mountain ascents.

This experience is a must!

In the mountain there are two universes that require different skills: snow/ice and rock.

Depending on the final goal, we can focus on one of these topics during the course. But it's also possible to try both to get an ideal of which is more appealing.

If we are in Chamonix, ice course will be at the Mer de Glace. The rock course will be on a cliff, at les Gaillands for example.

This course is for beginners or people looking to improve their mountaineering techniques.

I can take with me up to 6 people. I avoid larger groups because I prefer to spend more time with each participant. If you are more than 6, I will ask a friend guide to join us.

I invite you to contact me if you wish to learn mountaineering in Chamonix. I will be glad to give you the foundations for you to consider high mountain ascents later on.

Mountain Guide

Based in Chamonix, I am in love with the Alps because of everything they offer me: great off-piste skiing, perfect granite climbing, superb peaks and ridges in high altitude.

I love to work with people, share my experience with them and guide them with passion.

Julia was great! She let me explore myself and challenged me at the same time. She helped me to develop my mountaineering skills at my level. She respected my wishes and selected the best projects. I really enjoyed 3 days of mountaineering with Julia ūüĎć.
