Join Cédric, IFMGA certified mountain guide, on a rock climbing adventure in one (or more!) of the routes of Niolu valley, in Corsica.
Niolu is a region in Corsica, in the northwestern part of the island. The edges of the region are the highest mountains in Corsica. And this is where I invite you to a fantastic rock climbing day.
There are amazing options in different mountains. At Capu Tafunatu (2335m), we can do the Paras route (170 meters, difficulty D).
If you choose Paglia Orba (2525m), there are many choices:
– Finch route (east face, 400 meters, difficulty AD+)
– Ange Ethylique (east face, 260 meters, difficulty TD-)
– Nid d’Aigle route (northwest face, 230 meters, difficulty TD)
– Surella d’Irlanda (northwest route, 250 meters, difficulty ED-)
At the beautiful Cinque Frati (1986m) we can follow the South-North traverse (300 meters, difficulty AD+). We can also go to Punta Licciola (2235m) and follow the North-East couloir (550 meters, difficulty D-). Finally, at Punta Castelluccia (2188m) we can do the Barjots couloir (500 meters, difficulty D).
I particularly enjoy guiding my friends and clients rock climbing in Niolu Valley because:
– The scenery is breathtaking
– We can climb all year round
– There are difficulty options for many levels, from AD+ to ED-
Another destination that I really like in Corsica for rock climbing is Porto, check it out!
Interested in climbing at the Niolu Valley? Then please send me a request to book this trip! It will be my pleasure to guide you there.
Certified mountain guide UIAGM / IFMGA
I work with Manu, a good friend of mine...
We are both rock climbing instructors and certified mountain leaders. I shared with Manu happy and doubtful moments, building a professional future with a passionate focus on the mountain and the guide role. An open vision over the world, where our competences, knowledge and curiosity are at our client’s service for one day or for life.
The agency we founded together is the natural outcome of our profound complicity. People think we are cousins or brothers. We are just friends, and lucky to be so, because our children are in love: as in love as you can be at 8 years old!
We are both lucky to live in Corsica, this unknown mountain where climbers, mountaineers and skiers still feel like pioneers. This mountain is our playground and our office.
Curious and open to the world, we also organize each year trips to faraway places to see what other mountains and people can give to us, and what we can learn from them.
Ice in the Equator and Patagonia, Spanish, Jordanian or American rocks, snow in the Carpathians, Norway ot the Caucasus. We love the mountain in all its forms and every time we reach a summit we want to climb the neighbouring summit and find what is hiding behind it.

IMPORTANT COMMENT: the trip couldn\'t be made due to the weather. But both Cedric as the backoffice team has been extremely helpful in finding an alternative and solution. Finally we didn\'t go because of illness of 2 of the group. But definitely I will look for another trip next year.
The trip was great. We changed the destination to suit abilities. We climbed in the Restonica Valley which was beautiful. Cédric was excellent as a guide, highly recommended.

Cedric is a fantastic guide. He is helpful, friendly, very competent and caring. He made our time in Corsica very enjoyable and we would love to organise another trip with him in the future.
We\'ve had the best time with Manu at the Suare crag in Calvi. His professionalism is absolutely top class and made us feel incredibly safe with his professional climbing skills. Most importantly we had a lot of fun. Explore Share is an amazing platform with various activities around the world and I can\'t believe I never knew about it until now! I\'ve already share this platform with adventurous friends and I am sure I will definitely be using this service again. Well done guys for your efficiency! Love your work!
Manu, was a very friendly and professional guide. As I am fairly new to climbing he picked a good route suitable to my experience. As a result I really enjoyed the trip and felt that I learnt a lot. I would definitely do this trip again and would recommend it to others
The climbing was great at an excellent spot with many routes. Everyone had a lot of fun. Would definitely come again if we had a chance. Many thanks, Andrew
My 1 day of glorious granite sport multi pitching with Cedric! The only route (??) to start from the sea was a great adventure with some exposed pitched of enjoyable climbing. Cedric was great: full of energy and enthusiasm and really motivating. Obviously extremely professional and handing out advice both with climbing technique and rope / safety.
Merci Manu pour nous avoir fait partager ta passion de la montagne et de la Corse. Bravo pour ton professionnalisme et pour la qualité de ton équipe.
I had amazing 2 days climbing in Corsica with Cédric as my guide. Cédric introduced me to Corsican backcountry that he lovingly called his garden: massive towering mountain, emerald waters of roaring streams, beautiful wild flowers. I highly recommend Cédric to anyone looking for a guide be it Corsica or anywhere else. I miss this incredible place already and look forward to coming back!
