These 5 days of climbing take place between Vercors and Diois: a hut to hut journey to discover the best climbing spots in La Drôme. It is both for beginners and for people with minimum level 6a leading.
It takes place in Omblèze, a magnificent small village in the Vercors, where we will climb on beautiful red limestone, and in two sites of provençal Drôme: Saou and Luc en Diois.
Enjoy the beauty of these 3 places and the Provençe villages as well as the mild climate.
During these 5 days, we will learn:
– Ensuring a second and a lead climber,
– Rappeling safely,
– Placing effective safeguards in the routes (nuts, pitons and tape slings),
– Relaying safely,
– Lead climbing in routes of level 5a – 5c…
