Join an IFMGA mountain guide for an exciting rock climbing journey at Corma di Machaby, an impressive wall in the Aosta Valley boasting single and multi-pitch climbs.
Corma di Machaby is a very popular rock climbing spot in the lower Aosta Valley, with single pitch and multi-pitch routes for all levels.
Lying close to the village of Arnad, 70 km away from Courmayeur, the 250 m wall of Corma di Machaby can be easily spotted from the highway that goes from Aosta to Torino.
For this rock climbing trip we’ll meet early in the morning, either in Courmayeur or in Arnad. After a short drive, an easy hike will lead us to the crag.
Here you’ll find hundreds of routes in excellent gneiss, ranging from 4a to 7b (in the French grading system).
In case you are a beginner, the Gruviera area is perfect for single pitch climbs. However, if you want to venture on multi-pitch routes, I can help you choose the best option according to your climbing skills.
Finally, we’ll go back to Courmayeur in the afternoon.

Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.
