    I’m happy to invite you to live an unforgettable 6 day trip in Cerces and Ecrins. Both are great rock climbing spots to practice some multi-pitch rock climbing and improve your safety skills.

    Rock climbing in Cerces is technical and varied because the limestone there is quite compact and well protected. The approach walks can be significant, reinforcing the alpine character of the site. On the other side, rock climbing in Ecrins is on an alpine granite with compact slabs and cracks, where the equipment is not always complete.

    During these 6 days I will teach you the main top rope climbing techniques on different rock types in the beautiful limestone mountains of Cerces and the granite of the Ecrins. You will also learn:
    – Climbing techniques with very varied styles.
    – Safety techniques.
    – Progression techniques specific for multi-pitch routes as how to build an anchor and manage a safety abseiling.
    – How to feel confident on equipped multi-pitch routes and on trad.
    – Self rescue and rescue techniques.

    All participants must have a 5b technical level. That means that previous rock climbing experience is needed as well as a good physical condition.

    Come climb with me to Cerces and Briançon and learn while enjoying a unique trip. Click on the green button and make your reservation now. It’ll be my pleasure to be your guide!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

    The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

    After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

    I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

    My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
