Description

I propose you this "traditional climbing"" course in the Caroux massif (Hérault department).

This stay will be an opportunity to learn or improve your "trad" climbing skills on cliffs adapted to the use of cams and crack techniques.

The course takes place over 2 or 3 days:

  • On the first day, you will learn the theory and practice the basics of trad climbing techniques on one pitch routes.
  • The second day will be dedicated to deepening these techniques and then to climbing a multi pitch route of 100 to 200 meters.
  • The third day (optional but recommended) is dedicated to the realisation of a longer multi pitch route in order to practice all that will have been learned during the first two days and to enjoy the ascent of a magnificent real summit. The aiguilles du Caroux (The Deplasse, the Viallat, and the Godefroy) offer some of the most spectacular routes without being technically complicated.

Located about an hour's drive north of Béziers, the Caroux massif is unique in the region because of its gneiss rock which is reminiscent of Chamonix granite. The wild character of its gorges and the "mountain" atmosphere that reigns there will undoubtedly provide you with a change of scenery and a taste for the great outdoors.
