Infos & Booking


Traditional climbing is all about using your own protection, also known as nuts and friends, to progress safely on the rock.

During this 4-day course, I propose you to climb small and long cracks on the naturally sculpted sandstone of Annot in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, in a magical atmosphere and in the heart of a magnificent place renowned by climbers. You will discover and learn how to place your own protections and thus become autonomous on an unbolted cliff.

If you would like to go even further in your use of trad climbing equipment, I would recommend a one-day initiation course to aid climbing in Isère, and if you would like to take your climbing to the next level, a climbing course around Grenoble to overcome your fear of falling.

I also suggest applying what you have learned on an trad climbing trip in the Lofoten, or on a climbing and canyoning stay in Oman.
