Description

I propose a two half-day and two day course dedicated to the practice of climbing and via ferrata to make your teenagers enjoy themselves in the beautiful Chamonix valley in Haute-Savoie! 🌞

The "teenagers vertical course" formula allows them to practice climbing and via ferrata in a small group of 4 participants, aged 12 to 16.

The stay is confirmed as soon as 3 people are booked. In case of cancellation (bad weather or too few people registered), your deposit of 78€ is refunded.

If you also want to discover verticality or to progress in climbing, I advise you this group course for adults, still in Chamonix.
