Description

I propose a tailor-made course in the beautiful autumn colours to introduce you to climbing and to climb Mont Aiguille. As a bonus, you will bivouac in this exceptional environment that is the conservaion area of the southern highlands of the Vercors.

This course between hiking and climbing is also a time shared in the mountains in small groups and supervised by a guide teacher. Together you will learn how to move around in varied terrain, to ensure your progress in traditional climbing. It is not necessary to practice climbing before this course, a training day is planned for this purpose.

Departure is from Die, accessible by train from Paris (3h30).
