Description

Multi pitch climbing routes are wonderful  trips. It's going for an adventure where performance counts less than the pleasure itself.

This day is especially for indoor or 1-pitch route climbers who would like to acquire the basics to go out on multi pitch routes independently. Also, this may interest you if you are already practicing the multi pitch routes but want to acquire safer behaviors and have more skills to face the different situations that you could meet. This can also interest you if you are simply looking for an instructor to climb with (leading one after the other one).

It will also be an opportunity to evolve in an amazing environment: the Jonte Gorges. The beauty of flying vultures will add charm to the beautiful climbing routes!
