Verticality climbing course 8-12 years

During the courses, children will learn or review the basics of climbing and will be able to tie rope knots, learn belay techniques and safety rules. In each group lesson, they will improve their climbing skills: mastery of lead climbing, movement, initiation to more difficult routes on natural sites, having fun abseiling, zip-lining and swinging.

In summary, 3 half-days outdoors practicing climbing in a natural environment while having fun and in a friendly atmosphere!

During the summer holidays (July/August), we also offer the vertical option + (from Monday to Friday): for a complete and multi-sport course, the children will practice another vertical activity with the via ferrata and will have a great time in canyoning!

- The via ferrata at La Sambuy or at La Clusaz, in the heart of the Aravis massif. (The course will be defined by the instructor, according to the number of children registered and the level of the participants)

- The Angon Discovery Canyon is an introductory course, totally adapted to children and including descents in slides, jumps and abseils.
