Safety academy alpine climbing advanced

Do you have a solid foundation for long-distance rock climbing and do you dream of climbing on cornerers in adventure terrain? This course is for you. Our guides will teach you the basics of climbing in adventure terrain: installation of cams, strap and making of relays in mountain terrain. The serious things begin and you will evolve as leader of rope to put your own protection. This course takes place in the mountains around Annecy, in Bornes, Bauges and Aravis. We will take advantage of the limestone rock and splendid view in the adventure terrain of the Pre-Alps to teach the basics or improve.
