INTRODUCTION


Climbing in France, warm rock and bolts! From incredible bouldering to soaring alpine rock, it’s all here.  Based in the Ardèche and Cevennes we have thirty years of experience of climbing in the region.  We aim to introduce you to the joy of climbing in the region, it is ideal for anyone keen to push their grade and experience, but put off by the British weather!  You have a number of options to choose from:

 

  • Sport Climbing day trips
  • Learn to trad climb courses
  • Multi pitch trad climbing course

 

Basic rock climbing experience is required to get the most from this experience.  There is also an option to pioneer multi pitch trad climbs, in which case a solid background in climbing will be required. Please outline your experience in our booking form.

 

HEALTH & SAFETY


Because of the technical nature of these trips, we only use instructors who hold the highest outdoor pursuits awards, in this case the Mountaineering Instructor Award, the holder being recognised by the French authorities and the Brevat d’Etat. The MIA and Brevet d’Etat are professional awards and holders are assessed to high standards in the skills required for instructing rock climbing. We do not compromise on your safety.
