The Verdon Gorge is one of the most beautiful river canyons in Europe and attracts thousands of rock climbers for its more than 1,500 climbing routes. This trip is your chance to explore this beautiful area for one or several days and enjoy an amazing multi-pitch climbing adventure. Join me!

Located in south-eastern France, the Verdon Gorge was formed by the Verdon River, which is named for its beautiful turquoise-green colour. It is about 25 kilometres long and up to 700 meters deep. With impressive cracks, pillars and endless limestone walls, it is an outstanding place for multi-pitch climbing.

About the guide

guide profile img

After nearly 10 years of mountaineering in Chamonix, I decided to dedicate myself to rock climbing.

In 2005, after one year intensive training, he got the french national sport’s instructor certificate for rock climbing (BEES escalade).

I have been exploring the crags of France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and China. I finally decided to set up his climbing school in the island of Kalymnos (Greece). The beautiful landscapes, the endless sunshine and the vast climbing potential of the island convinced me to settle here from my first visit.

Since then, climbers from all over the world came to share his passion and to take avantage of his experience to improve their rock climbing skills. I have opened many new routes both in Kalymnos and Telendos from 4 to 9a. I climb 8a on-sight and red-point up to 8c. I did most of the routes of the island and always has new projects to red point!
