Description

Do you enjoy independent rock climbing, but want to do so responsibly? Then this 2-day course is perfect for you as it focuses on rescue and self-rescue techniques. The course will take place at the Grands Malades in the Wallonia region of Belgium. It is a beautiful area, full of great views and wonderful climbing.

Safety is crucial when it comes to rock climbing; however, accidents do occur, and it is important to know how to deal with them, whether you are climbing alone or with a partner. And on this course, we will focus on several topics and techniques that will aid you in the event of an accident or problematic situation. Some of what we will cover includes how to escape during a climbing retreat in the lead and how to get back on the rope when you cannot pass a passage. We will also focus on assistance to the second in a difficult passage, intervention for unlocking your partner and rappelling down with them and much more.

This course takes place from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, each day. However, if time is an issue, you can also enjoy this course over 4 days, from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm each day. Those dates are on the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of June. Each day is a Wednesday.

In order to participate on this trip you should be able to climb autonomously.

Learning about rescue and self-rescue techniques is very important to safe and successful rock climbing. And on this 2-day course, I will teach you many of those techniques. Moreover, you will get to learn them on the beautiful Grands Malades in Wallonia, Belgium. To take this course, just send me a request.

I also offer a 2-day single-pitch rock climbing course at the Grands Malades, which you can enjoy here.

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!
