Description

On this full day rock climbing expedition, I would like to guide you on the jagged surface of the Monte Bertonze (1,600m). This beautiful peak is located near the town of Popolasca, on the French island of Corsica.

For the climb, we will be scaling approximately 600 meters of the 50 Splendid Soli section of the Monte Bertonze. The climb is TD grade, and will begin with an approximately one hour hiking approach, which will give you plenty of opportunity to gaze at the lovely landscape of the area.

Our meeting point will be Popolasca. This stunning and picturesque town is a great place to visit. It will also give you the chance to interact with the wonderful local people living there. It is also worth noting that not too far from the town is the amazing city of Corte, so if you are planning a longer vacation in Corsica, be sure to check that place out as well.

With approximately 600 meters of climbing on this trip, it is important that participants are in good physical condition. It is also advantageous if you have some prior rock climbing experience as well.

Rock climbing in Corsica is a great way to spend a day on the island. And one of the best spots is the Monte Bertonze near Popolasca. So if you would like to join me on this exciting trip, just send me a request and let’s start climbing!

Would you like to do some more rock climbing in the nearby Castiglione area? Then come and join me on this trip.

Accommodation

There are comfortable accommodation options in the Popolasca area, as well as the nearby city of Corte that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

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.
