Description

Beautiful all year round, Haute-Savoie in France is a wonderful place to visit. Surrounded by the sensational French Alps, this place will constantly leave you in a state of awe. And for an entire week, I would like to guide you for a rock-climbing adventure in the area that will take you to some great spots. Those spots include Bornes and Aravis, both of which are located near Annecy

There are many great cliffs to choose from around Bornes and Aravis. As a result, this week long trip will give you something new and exciting every single day. Furthermore, because of the variety, there are cliffs for people of different climbing levels. So, if you are an expert looking for that next great challenge, you will be properly accommodated. And if you are less experienced and looking for some great walls to further develop your skills, you will find something amazing, too. I will also provide you with some climbing coaching that will cover several topics. Those topics include advanced safety techniques, cliff progression, relays, recalls and more.

In order to participate on this trip, you should be able to climb at a minimum 5b level, and be able to climb autonomously. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

Rock climbing around Annecy at Bornes and Aravis is a great way to spend a week. The Haute Savoie area of France is spectacular. And on this trip, you will get to admire the area’s beauty while doing some exciting rock climbing. To join me just send a request.

I can also take you rock climbing on the Drome Provencale on this week long adventure.

There are plenty of comfortable accommodation options in Haute-Savoie that I would be happy to recommend to you.

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!
