Popolasca, Corsica, Guided Rock Climbing


Come and let IFMGA certified guide Cedric lead you on a fun rock climbing adventure at Popolasca on the French island of Corsica.


+1 Day

All year




* Do some great rock climbing on the Monte Bertonze.

* Spend some time in the lovely town of Popolasca.

* Venture out to the nearby town of Castiglione and city of Corte.


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.

Mountain 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.

What people are saying about Cédric


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.



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.


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 a fantastic time climbing in col Bavella area. Cedric is an amazing guide, extremely professional, attentive, patient and very easy to work with. He is a natural instructor/teacher. I highly recommend Cedric as climbing guide. Col Bavella is a faboulouse place with multitude of climbing routes of all kinds and grades. The granite rock is very good, firm, with good traction. The views are really stunning.
