Description

Sleeping on a portaledge, hanging from the rock, when climbing big walls for example, is simply a completely unique experience. If this is the kind of special adventure you are looking for, join me for this program! This can be combined with one or two rock climbing days around Chamonix, France.

So, come and join me for some rock climb and we’ll end the day with a dinner on the portaledge. This is the perfect setting to enjoy a quiet sunset with an unmatched view on the Mont Blanc. Later in the evening, you will experience the very special feeling of falling asleep with the cool air on our faces.

I’m from Chamonix. My idea for this program is to help you discover some of my favorite climbing spots in the area, or elsewhere in the Alps. My goal is to help you have the best experience possible. So I am open to tailoring a program based on your own goals, time availability and climbing experience.

Another option for this program is to just abseil down from the top of the cliff to spend the evening and the night on the portaledge, without the rock climbing part of the tour. Both are amazing and memorable program options.

About the guide

guide profile img

I grew up far from the mountains, and I didn't imagine what was waiting for me...
When I was 17, I had the first symptoms: I left without second guessing it my foreign tongues studies and I settled at Briançon, in the Hautes-Alpes, to satiate my passion for snowboarding. I practiced non-stop for some winters, spending the "summers" in the southern hemisphere.
The virus started spreading: my love for large spaces led me to get certified as a mountain leader.
During 10 years, I spent my summers taking groups to discover the most beautiful hikes around the Ecrins massif.
During this time, I discovered alpinism and a there was a new spark in my eyes. The diagnostic came fast: I was severely passionate about the mountains. Since then I never stopped dreaming of every kind of ascent, and I organised my everyday life to try to achieve many of them.
I learned to appreciate equally the end of the mountain journey and the friend or rope parter with whom I share my trips. After 10 years going through paths with hiking groups and with a fierce desire to go higher, I started studying to become a High Mountain Guide. I became IFMGA-certified in August, 2017.
Today I propose to travel this path, leading us sometimes to a summit, to admire the vastness of the horizon, taking us to something simple, pure and essential.
My head is filled with memories and projects, and I would be thrilled to share one with you. But I'm also here to help you turn your own project into a reality.
