+1 Days

Jun - Sep



If you are looking for superb rock-climbing routes in the Chamonix Valley, this trip is a must-do. You can join me for one or more days, and I will show you some of the best spots in the region. 

Chamonix is a world-class destination for rock climbing. This time, I propose to take you either to Plan de l'Aiguille or Aiguilles Rouges. I can help you pick the best route for you according to your skills and experience.

Plan de l'Aiguille

Only 1 to 2 hours of hiking from the mid-station of Aiguille du Midi cable car (Plan de l'Aiguille, 2317 m) will take you to this exciting rock climbing spot. Here you can find multi-pitch granite rock routes for different levels. There are climbing routes up to 6c (in the French grading system).

Beginners may want to try routes like Lepidopteres or Papillons Arete (Aiguille du Peigne), whereas more seasoned climbers may like routes like Le Carre or Le Rond et La Lune.

Aiguilles Rouges

Lying on the northwest of the Chamonix Valley, the Aiguilles Rouges (Red Peaks) are a well-known rock climbing area.

This mountain range stands opposite to Mont Blanc massif. Because of that, it boasts some stunning views of its impressive peaks and the whole Chamonix Valley.

The area is easy to access: you can take the Brévent and Flégère lifts from Chamonix or Les Praz.

In Aiguilles Rouges you’ll find a wide variety of multi-pitch climbing routes. Some lower-grade climbs are ideal for beginners with some previous experience. In fact, they’re a great introduction to alpine climbing. However, there are also harder routes up to 6c (in the French grading system).

Mountain Guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide living in Cyprus. I have a passion for exploring the mountains since I was child. Kyperounda, the town where I was born and raised, was my first playground, the place where I started practising different outdoor activities.

First I learnt skiing. Then, I started training and taking part in races and competitions, traveling extensively in Europe. As I am very curious, I kept trying all kinds of sports until I discovered climbing and all its exciting possibilities.

I also developed both my academic and my practical skills in the university, where I studied Outdoor Studies and Sport Science. During that time, I obtained qualifications as a Mountain Leader and a Climber.

Teaching other people is one of the things I like the most. I find a deep joy in helping others to enjoy the mountains as much as I do.

The experience of all these years as well as my technical skills, have taken me closer to my goal: becoming an IFMGA mountain guide.

What people are saying about this trip



Kyriakos was very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and attentive. I really enjoyed having him guide me up the mountain. He was more than willing to share information and answer questions that I had, and he did a good job steering me toward a route that met my personal needs/goals. I couldn’t recommend him more highly!
