Ready to take your rock climbing skills to the next level? Join Sylvain, IFMGA certified guide, on a course this summer in Orny - "trad" climbing included!
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Are you looking to upgrade your rock climbing skills? Do you want to climb more serious and technical Alpine Climbing route, where you need to place your own protections and build your own anchors? This is your chance! Join me for a challenging rock climbing course in the Swiss Alps, and bring your friends along.
In this course, you will learn how to “trad” climb – protect yourself using friends (or cams) and nuts, and build anchors in different situations!
The location for this program is the surroundings of the traditional Cabane d' Orny. This beautiful mountain hut (2,832 m) is located between two lakes, and faces the impressive Orny glacier.
During this day, we will pursue different climbs, located at only 45 minutes from the hut. I will teach all about "trad" climbing – or traditional climbing – which is exactly how rock climbing used to be not that long ago. This will include learning route-finding and technical knowledge of climbing anchors. All of this, on real, natural walls.
The groups for this program are of a minimum of 4 climbers. The climbing level required is 5b.
This program is available on demand, in the summer.

Ever since I was born in 1977, I was motivated by a force of freedom. As an adolescent I sought to plunge deep into myself; to know and find myself. I found an answer in the wide open spaces, deserts, journeys and bike rides across thousands of kilometers that nature offers.
Nature is a way to connect with oneself, others and the 'rest'. Sharing these amazing experiences makes them so deep that they defy the very mountains, as we vibrate with a real and powerful energy. Through flora and fauna, through plain and summit: nature teaches and shows us the way.
I live at Jura Neuchâtel. I am married and a father of two small children. I have also been responsible for mountaineering camp and have received a "J + S" recognition (Youth and Sports). I will happily guide you across these mountains.

My only comments would be that this isn’t a beginner’s course . Levels of fitness and equipment needed should be in initial advertising
