1 Day

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.

About the guide

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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
