Open to everyone

First Time


During spring or summer, I invite you to join me to the Vallee de la Mongie, in the French Pyrenees, for a fun initiation to big wall rock climbing. In particular, we will be at the Garotte site. 

This program is ideal fr a first approach to rock climbing. During the activity you will learn how to get roped, get assured and start climbing. The routes are perfectly adapted and safe.

Young and older, men and women, sporty or sedentary, in any case you are welcome! The terrain is apt for different levels, so don’t think that you will get bored if you already have some climbing experience. The Garotte site offers routes with difficulties ranging from 4 to 6c. Therefore, you can learns and also go for more difficult routes.

The walls are 10-20 meters high. A reasonable altitude to generate excitement but learn in all safety at the same time.

I propose a half-day program (approximately 3 hours climbing) to learn the basics in a beautiful and safe environment. This activity is for the whole family! In fact, children as young as 5 years old can join. Besides, the easy access makes it possible for grandparents to join as well. So it is an activity for the whole family!

Tempted to try big wall rock climbing in the Vallee de la Mongie? Then book this trip and join in, you won’t regret it!

If you already have some experience and are looking for a longer trip, have a look at this one climbing in the beautiful Mallos de Riglos, in Spain.

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!
