Let me invite you to a 2-day rock climbing introductory course in Chamonix. A big opportunity to discover the secrets of climbing for the first time or to improve your current skills!

The aim of this learning weekend in Chaminox is to teach beginners the basis of belaying and some other progression techniques. In that way, you’ll go back home as an independent and self-confident climber.

And for those who already have a good level of climbing, this trip will allow you to improve your technical skills. Moreover, Chamonix offers a wide variety of rocky pitches where you can put them into practice while having a great time!

During this 2-day initiation course in Chamonix you’ll enjoy amazing cliffs and very accessible tracks for all levels. Besides to that, I can also offer a great program to teenagers from the age of 14 years.

I will take with me a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 5. That is because of safety reasons. In addition to that, you will able to take full advantage of the training aspect of the course.

The rock climbing introductory course in Chamonix consists in the following content:

  • Climbing safely and reach the top by easy tracks (beginners);
  • Climbing safely by intermediate-difficulty routes (for those wishing to improve their techniques);
  • Ensure and tighten the ropes;
  • Make a safe descent.

At the bottom of this description you can read a sample itinerary of our weekend in the cliffs of Chamonix. Please, keep in mind that any item can be changed or adapted to your own wishes and motivations.
