    If you are looking for a really exciting climbing adventure, I have the perfect plan for you. Join me on a 2-day guided climb and spend the night on a portaledge in Mount Veyrier, in Annecy!

    I know it might sound like a risky adventure, but I assure you sleeping on a portaledge is really safe! I have spent many nights hanging from a rock and it’s truly an amazing experience, sleeping out there.

    We will climb Mont Veyrier (1291 m), a mountain located in the east side of Lake Annecy, in the French Alps.

    We have the option of just sleeping there: going down from the top of the mountain and installing the portaledge not far from the top, or in the middle of the wall. Or we can either climb up from the bottom of the wall and sleep in the midddle. Then, with this option, the day after we would either abseil down or climb up.

    Also, it’s possible to join this tour with no climbing experience.

    Besides, if the conditions in the mountain are not good or if you just want to go somewhere else, we can enjoy the same experience on Arête des Cosmiques or in the Brévent peak. These are 2 other amazing spots in Chamonix for this exciting adventure.

    So send me a request if you want to join me on this unique experience! We will start planning this great climbing adventure in Annecy together.

    Mathis is a very knowledgeable guide. We made great time and learned a fair amount about moving fast in Alpine terrain.

    Skiing from Aguille du Midi down to Chamonix has been an experience of a lifetime. We enjoyed the Valle Blanche breathtaking views all the way down and the best route and ski conditions we could ever had! Our guide provided us with the avalanche material and safety information prior to start the run and shared his knowledge and skiing advice with us during the day. We\'d 100% recommend the activity and our experienced guide Mathis! Having him guiding us made it an incredible day. Thank you so much for the unforgettable adventure!!
