Description

I propose a 3 day course to become autonomous in multi pitch route climbing. Rope handling, abseiling and belay organization will have no more secrets for you after these few days.

If you are interested in this adventure, join me in the mythical Verdon Gorges, one of the most famous climbing spots in France and even in the world.

You will have the opportunity to taste the incredible atmosphere of these gorges, to climb on perfect limestone rock, to evolve several hundred meters above the river and maybe even, if you are lucky, to be flown over by the griffon vultures or the peregrine falcons which inhabit this exceptional place.

At the border of the departments of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Var, all styles of climbing are offered to you: cracks, slabs, overhangs, water drops... enough to delight all climbers. Around the pretty village of La Palud-sur-Verdon where we will certainly stay, many known sectors and cliffs are easily accessible: Imbut, Escalès, Félines, Malines, Galetas, Eycharme, Mainmorte, Maugué, etc. It is there that you will climb superb multi pitch routes that we will choose together. You will love it!

Required level: be able to climb 6a 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.
