Climbing and via ferrata initiation program in Haute Tarentaise in the French Savoy

The French Haute Tarentaise is at the crossroads of four massifs:

  • The Mont Blanc massif, with crystalline schist, gneiss and a little granite in the Vallée des Glaciers at the southern end of the massif;
  • Beaufortain, with limestone and many conglomerates such as Pierra Menta;
  • The Grées Alps, border massif between Mont Blanc and Grand Paradis, geologically very contrasted: you can find a bit of everything to climb on beautiful cliffs like at Monal, in front of the Dôme de la Sache Glaciers.
  • The Vanoise is also very contrasted, with cliffs which are, despite everything, regularly in limestone;

Advanced and confirmed climbing course in Italy in Valle d'Aosta

The Aosta Valley is one of the most beautiful regions of the Alps for climbing, there are plenty of different climbing sectors with different type of rocks and of exceptional quality:

  • The Valgrisenche valley is one of the most beautiful valleys, with nearly thirty cliffs and hundreds of routes very well equipped by local Guides. There are cliffs perfect to climb on hot summer days;
  • The lower part of the Aosta Valley, which allows to climb in the sun at low altitude on bad weather days;
  • The southern side of Mont Blanc, in the valley of Courmayeur, has beautiful cliffs and beautiful granite routes, with a rather exceptional view of Europe’s highest peak.
