The Via Ferrata to get used to big walls and height, before making a multi-pitches route
The initiation and improvement programs always include a day on a Via Ferrata, to allow you to set up small, simple exercises on the wall, before starting the serious things. It is much more comfortable to start rope maneuvers with an easy route, before going on a more difficultclimbing route.
Climbing: a journey in the vertical world
Our trips take place mainly outdoors, if the weather is not good, you may climb indoors by paying entry. Otherwise you can do another activity or rope manipulations to familiarize yourself with the techniques.
Climbing discovery course to gain experience
Improving in rock climbing takes time, even for the most gifted, you need to be patient: a large part of the movements require experience, especially on multi-pitch routes and in the mountains where the equipment is more widely spaced. In order not to take risks, you have to learn to read the terrain and its dangers: sometimes a route can be much more engaged than what a beginner might think. Take advantage of the mistakes of others in order not to be reckless, experience takes time.
Climbing equipment to plan the activity
We will ask to come with your own climbing shoes, harness, helmet and carabiners. This material will be checked by your guide to verify that it is in good condition. The rest of the material will be provided by your Guide.
You can of course take all your equipment (if you have more), the Guide will check it and advise you on its use if you wish.
