Description

During this traditional climbing course in the Caroux massif (Hérault department), initiate yourself or improve your skills in "trad" climbing on cliffs adapted to the installation of cams and to cracking techniques.

The course takes place over one day during which you will put into practice the essential techniques of trad climbing.

For a complete course on trad climbing techniques in big routes, another course exists over 3 days, still in the Caroux massif.

The Caroux massif is unique in the region because of its gneiss rock which is reminiscent of chamoniard granite. The wild character of its gorges and the "mountain" atmosphere there will give you a change of scenery and a taste of nature.
