Climbing: Introduction for beginners, or technical development for seasoned climbers

We offer several types of climbing excursions at different sites, depending on your level:
The initiation takes an easy pace, even for your first time. We take the time to explain the basics of outdoor climbing: how to rope up and how to belay with a top-rope, as well as showing you techniques to climb high with the least effort possible. 
The expert/technique development sessions can be adapted to your level and requirements, and can take place either at an indoor wall or on a cliff. Your session(s) with us can focus on grades (4b to 7a) with a top rope, or on learning the ins and outs of lead climbing: how to place the quickdraws so that they don’t get twisted, how to handle the rope for the belay, how to fall with our “flight school”… basically, learn how to take your climbing to the next level!
