Description

On this adventure, I would like to guide you on a thrilling rock climbing experience on the Verghellu.

Located near the beautiful city of Corte in Corsica, the Verghellu is a fantastic place to climb. And on this trip, you will get to choose between two wonderful options.

The first option is the south ridge of the Point (976m). There will be an approximately 250 meter climb on this option, at a D+ grade level. This option will also include a short, but scenic 30 minute hike.

The second option is the C’he dinu of the Cervellu (1,075m). There will also be an approximately 250 meter climb on this option, and it will be at a TD+ grade level.  This option will include a short, but scenic 40 minute hike.

Each option is different, but will provide you with a fun rock climbing experience. Each option will also provide you with exquisite views of the Verghellu. Moreover, I will see to it that you are properly guided every step of the way, while also providing you with helpful advice whenever I can. Hence ensuring that you will have an experience that will be as enjoyable and memorable as it will be secure and informative.

So if you are visiting the island of Corsica, and find yourself in the lovely city of Corte, and want to enjoy a day of outdoor fun, send me a request, and let me guide you for some great rock climbing at the Verghellu. I look forward to hearing from you.

I also offer another rock climbing trip at the Vallee de Tavignanu, which is also near Corte.

About the guide

Certified mountain guide UIAGM / IFMGA
I work with Manu, a good friend of mine...
We are both rock climbing instructors and certified mountain leaders. I shared with Manu happy and doubtful moments, building a professional future with a passionate focus on the mountain and the guide role. An open vision over the world, where our competences, knowledge and curiosity are at our client’s service for one day or for life.
The agency we founded together is the natural outcome of our profound complicity. People think we are cousins or brothers. We are just friends, and lucky to be so, because our children are in love: as in love as you can be at 8 years old!
We are both lucky to live in Corsica, this unknown mountain where climbers, mountaineers and skiers still feel like pioneers. This mountain is our playground and our office.
Curious and open to the world, we also organize each year trips to faraway places to see what other mountains and people can give to us, and what we can learn from them.
Ice in the Equator and Patagonia, Spanish, Jordanian or American rocks, snow in the Carpathians, Norway ot the Caucasus. We love the mountain in all its forms and every time we reach a summit we want to climb the neighbouring summit and find what is hiding behind it.

IMPORTANT COMMENT: the trip couldn't be made due to the weather. But both Cedric as the backoffice team has been extremely helpful in finding an alternative and solution. Finally we didn't go because of illness of 2 of the group. But definitely I will look for another trip next year.

We've had the best time with Manu at the Suare crag in Calvi. His professionalism is absolutely top class and made us feel incredibly safe with his professional climbing skills. Most importantly we had a lot of fun. Explore Share is an amazing platform with various activities around the world and I can't believe I never knew about it until now! I've already share this platform with adventurous friends and I am sure I will definitely be using this service again. Well done guys for your efficiency! Love your work!

Manu, was a very friendly and professional guide. As I am fairly new to climbing he picked a good route suitable to my experience. As a result I really enjoyed the trip and felt that I learnt a lot. I would definitely do this trip again and would recommend it to others

My 1 day of glorious granite sport multi pitching with Cedric! The only route (??) to start from the sea was a great adventure with some exposed pitched of enjoyable climbing. Cedric was great: full of energy and enthusiasm and really motivating. Obviously extremely professional and handing out advice both with climbing technique and rope / safety.

I had amazing 2 days climbing in Corsica with Cédric as my guide. Cédric introduced me to Corsican backcountry that he lovingly called his garden: massive towering mountain, emerald waters of roaring streams, beautiful wild flowers. I highly recommend Cédric to anyone looking for a guide be it Corsica or anywhere else. I miss this incredible place already and look forward to coming back!

Trois jours de trek dans les montagnes, trois jours de canyoning. L’équilibre parfait pour découvrir la variété des paysages Corse. La région de Bavella est magnifique et les canyons tous les trois très différents. Le niveau n’est pas trop difficile, nous avons fait environ 12 heures de marche en deux jours sur les sentiers du GR20. Logement dans une ancienne bergerie, super authentique, Aline vous y attend et prépare des bons petits plats. Notre guide Cédric nous a accompagné durant toute la semaine, une perle qui nous a partagé sa passion pour les treks en haute montagne. Très pro, nous nous sommes senties en super sécurité à tout moment.
