Infos & Booking


Do you know how to set up stoppers and friends, install an anchor using three removable gears? Perhaps you are preparing for a rock climbing trip on cliffs that are harder than those you are accustomed to? "Trad" rock climbing demands specific techniques and more complex mental discipline than regular sport climbing.

Classes can be organised around a half day, a full day or during several days. Follow them for initiation, or improvement in "trad" rock climbing on terrain adapted to the positioning of stoppers and cams and in the technical aspects of crack climbing.

This group of classes and courses take place in the Caroux Massif (Hérault department).

The Caroux is unique in the area with gneiss rock that is similar to chamoniard granite. The stunning gorges and mountain landscape of this particular area are a guaranteed change of scenery and open air experience.

A day for initiation or technical improvement on "trad" climbing where you can work on the essential techniques of that kind of rock climbing.

  • Setting up trad anchors (belays with trad climbing gear) 
  • Development of specific techniques and strategies.
