Description

Regardless if you are a beginner to rock climbing who is just starting, or an expert who has been climbing for years, there is always room for improvement. There is always new techniques and skills to learn. As a result, I believe this 2-day  aid climbing workshop will help you in any ambitions you may have to be a better climber. Moreover, this course takes place in the beautiful Grands Malades and Freyr in Belgium.

Some of what we will be covering during this aid climbing course includes placement of moving points of progression, including nuts and pitons. We will also cover progression on stirrups, estimation of the reliability of anchors, relays on unstable anchors and much more. Thus helping you improve on the skills you may already have, while also teaching you some new ones as well.

All participants on this trip should be able to climb autonomously. It is also important to be in good physical condition.

Rock climbing is a fantastic source of exercise. It provides great views and gives participants an unmatched thrill. However, it is crucial to know how to do it properly and to constantly search for ways to improve. Hence why this 2-day aid climbing workshop at Grands Malades is so beneficial. To join me on this course, just send me a request.

Would you like to learn about and enjoy some traditional climbing in Belgium? Then come and join me on this 3-day course at Beez, Goyet and Dave.

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!
