Description

I propose you to go for two days in the Mont-Blanc massif to discover if mountaineering is a discipline you like.

You will have the opportunity to try walking on a snowy glacier, with and without crampons, and to climb a via ferrata on a cliff.

I will teach you the technical notions necessary to progress on a glacier and on a via ferrata. After that, you will know if you like mountaineering and if you want to renew the experience.

Objectives of the course:

  • Try walking with and without crampons on a snowy glacier.
  • Try roped-up progression on a glacier.
  • Try roped-up progression and technique on a via ferrata section.

If you wish to continue your learning in the activity, I advise you to follow me on the following courses:
