Highlights

 
     

    Join me for a half-day, a full day, a weekend or even a week of rock climbing in the best climbing spots of Belgium. Most of them are located in the south of the country, in Wallonia. Some of the best rock climbing spots where we can go are:

    I’ll organize a program according to your wishes, your technical level and what you want to learn. The trip can be from easy to sustained, from a half-day to several days long. We can go to only one of these destinations or explore various ones. I can take 4 to 8 people with me, depending on the program.

    I can also design a program for more experienced climbers who want to discover the different walls of Wallonia and/or improve their current rock climbing skills. In that way I’ll help you become more autonomous, focusing on security and safety. We can also practice both traditional and aid climbing. Sport and multi-pitch routes are interesting options too.

    Finally, I also organize via ferrata programs in Wallonia as well in many other amazing spots. Among them: Pont à Lesse (easy), Grands Malades (intermediate), Landelies (sustained).

    Feel free to send me a request if you want to climb these amazing sites in Wallonia. It will be my great pleasure to guide you here and let you enjoy an amazing time in my beautiful country 😉

    About the Guide

     
     

    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!

    We had a great day on the cliffs of Freyr with Christophe. He showed us some really nice climbing spots and gave us a lot of hints were to go climbing in the area. We did two nice multi-pitch tours and some sports climbing... Christophe did a fantastic job showing us the ins and outs. He found the right mix to both challenge and support us, always having an eye on safety - and most important, we had a lot of fun.
