Description

Come climb with me the "Great Wall" in the Verdon Gorges. During this 6-day trip you will improve your current climbing skills in some of the most spectacular gorges and canyons in Europe. The Verdon Gorges are located in Haute Provence Alps, southeast of France.

Climbing at the Verdon Gorges is enjoying the best carved and sticky rock with spectacular surroundings and large walls. An experience you should live at least once in your life! We will practice multi-pitch climbing. 

During this program I will teach you how to progress safely on big wall. You will also learn many other important techniques, such as:
– How to build different types of anchors,
– How to abseil a big wall and manage an overhang or pendulum,
– Rescue and self rescue
– Getting familiar with heights and routes of 100-300 meters long.

This trip is suitable for experienced climbers, especially for those who have tried some high routes before. The climbing level is 5b minimum.

Want to come to the Verdon Gorges? Then send me your request to book the trip. I will be eager to guide you in such an amazing rock climbing spot!  I also enjoy rock climbing in les Calanques and Verdon.

We had a really fantastic day of bouldering in Fontainebleau with our guide Ivan. He is very experienced and knows the region well. He showed us great boulders and routes that we would not have found on our own, and kept a good pace to keep us going for the full six hours.

My guide Ivan was friendly and helpful. With his tips I was able to climb routes that seemed impossible at first

We got a guide for backcountry skiing in Chamonix. The guide was excellent in fulfilling our wishes even though the viability was poor and snow layer thin. Our goals was to in a quiet nature area with not too many people. We ended up with 1000 meter gain and a ski through the forest over a 6 hour period. I was one of my best ski experiences.
