Rock-climbing

A. Rock-climbing & abseiling initiation

Discover the activity on specially developed climbing areas

Climbing : You will learn to safely equip yourself, rope up and securea partner. You will climb "top roping" (rope already in position), learning the right postures during the ascent as well as during the descent (always a bit of a thrill the first time). All this on routes progressively higher and more difficult.

Abseiling : You will also learning to use a figure of eight descender and to use a self-belaying device with an almost magical knot. So, if you let go, you don't fall. Then all you have to do is master the descending position. You move on to higher and steeper cliffs.
