Description

Two days course of "Trad Climbing" in the Caroux massif.

Initiation or perfecting "trad" climbing techniques on cliffs suitable for setting up trad gear and crack climbing.

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 are organized around two full 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.

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.
