Description

I propose a 3 or 4 day course to become autonomous in multi pitch route climbing. Rope handling, abseiling and belay organisation will have no secrets for you after these few days.  You can then be able to climb routes of several piches on your own.

This course is also an opportunity to discover several magnificent cliffs, offering superb views of the many high peaks that dominate us.

So if you are interested in this adventure, join me in the mythical Chamonix-Mont-Blanc valley in Haute-Savoie!

Level required: climbing 5b leading.

Once you are autonomous, don't hesitate to call on me to climb a multi pitch route that motivates you or makes you dream, in Haute-Savoie (Chamonix, Annecy, etc.) or in the Aosta valley.
