The Verdon Gorge, in south-eastern France, is a river canyon with perfect terrain for rock climbing. This week course is your chance to explore this amazing region and improve your skills with an expert guide. Join me!

On the border between the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Var department, the Verdon Gorge is carved by the rushing Verdon River. It is 25km long and up to 700m deep and one of the most beautiful canyons in Europe.

The Verdon offers over 1,500 climbing spots on huge limestone cliffs. On this week course we will head up some fabulous routes focusing on improving your single-pitch and multi-pitch skills!

We will work together on: mental aspects, movement, rhythm, rest strategies, breathing, injuries prevention, efficient training, lead climbing and belaying.

No previous rock climbing experience required!

So, if you are up for a rock climbing course in the Verdon Gorge, please contact me. You will improve your climbing skills and enjoy the best routes in the area!

About the Guide


After nearly 10 years of mountaineering in Chamonix, I decided to dedicate myself to rock climbing.

In 2005, after one year intensive training, he got the french national sport’s instructor certificate for rock climbing (BEES escalade).

I have been exploring the crags of France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada and China. I finally decided to set up his climbing school in the island of Kalymnos (Greece). The beautiful landscapes, the endless sunshine and the vast climbing potential of the island convinced me to settle here from my first visit.

Since then, climbers from all over the world came to share his passion and to take avantage of his experience to improve their rock climbing skills. I have opened many new routes both in Kalymnos and Telendos from 4 to 9a. I climb 8a on-sight and red-point up to 8c. I did most of the routes of the island and always has new projects to red point!

We climbed with Joe and he was amazing! Very knowledgeable about climbing, kept us calm and was very encouraging for our first climb. We are thankful for the skills we learnt and next time we are in Kalymnos we will be seeking Joe\'s assistance again. Thank you very much!
