Description

It is my pleasure to propose to you this 3-day climbing trip in the beautiful Vosges Natural Park. Its granite walls offer the best rock climbing options for both single-pitch and multi-pitch routes.

The rocks of Martinswand, located 1200 meters high, offer many climbing possibilities on a granite rock. In fact, the rock is very adherent and the equipment present is excellent. The climb is in general aerial on slabs and cracks. We will appreciate the magnificent views over the Frankenthal valley as well as the whole Munster valley. The total altitude of the cliff is 100-120 meters.

This amazing program I lead in Vosges is aimed at people who want to improve their technical knowledge such as:
– Safety techniques,
– Progression in sports tracks or long routes;
– Alpine climbing on slabs and cracks.

The only condition to join this program is to have some prior rock climbing experience and a good fitness level.

So if you find this 3 day program interesting please send me a request to book the trip. I am sure you will love this beautiful destination and its granite walls.

France is a fantastic destination for rock climbing, and here is another great trip that I also love: rock climbing at the Verdon gorges.

Accommodation

Hotel, guesthouse, camping in the Area (near Hohneck).

More info

You have to be member of an alpine club or to have an RC insurance. Please plan to book the trip at least 2 weeks in advance.

About the guide

guide profile img

I discovered the mountain with my parents at a young age thanks to hiking and alpine skiing. Around 12 years old, I started climbing, and it rapidly became a real passion, allowing me to live moments of intense adventure and escape. I dedicated most of my free time to it, which allowed me to reach a good level fast.

The Wallonie rocks, and particularly Freyr, are a great school to train for walls abroad like the large walls in Verdon, the Calanques and Chamonix. My passion took me then to alpinism, ski touring, ice climbing, canyoning. After my studies, I took 2 long initiating travels to Latin America, traveling the Andes range from Ecuador to Patagonia, by foot and cycling, down the Southern route. This exceptional experience woke up a new passion in me: traveling, discovering large spaces, different cultures and civilisations, to meet others and to get to know myself.

After sharing this passion with my friends and family, I discovered the urge to make of it a real profession. I started studying to become a climbing and alpinism instructor (UPMM certification). My studies in Physical Education and Physiotherapy gave me extra knowledge of physiology, pedagogy and traumatology.

I supervised my first climbing and alpinism trainings in the Club Alpin Belge. I then became a teacher at the CAB - a Federation for many educations destined for members, future instructors and physical education teachers. I was hired at the Federation-CAB as an education coordinator in 2003, then technical director in 2005. The 7 years spent at the CAB strengthened my technical, pedagogical and management abilities. In 2011, I decided to change my orientation and return to the "field", working again in the organisation of trainings, trips, expeditions...

My motto: professionalism, friendliness and above all pleasure!
