Climbing activities

For adventure to sport rock climbing, many activity adapted to everybody...

Our objective is to help you climb safely, gain confidence and offer everyone as much action and thrills as they want, or guide them, step by step, towards independance and improving their technique.

We are proud to propose activities adapted to everybody: child, teenager or adult, beginner or experienced, individuals, families or group. These activities take place on rocks and cliffs carefully chosen and prepared by us,inside big Verdon Canyon and around (Aiguines, Aups, Chateaudouble).

If you are more motivated by the physical and technical components of climbing, you will certainly be seduced by one of our Sport Rock climbing menu; if you are more attracted to the discovery and adventure dimension, you will certainly be more interested in one of the Leisure climbing menu.

  • We had a fantastic time in the Gorges du Verdon, climbing with Philippe. We went for 2 days of climbing to learn how to climb independently, and found Philippe to be the perfect instructor to take us on this path: very experienced climber, very patient attitude, but also motivating and pushing you to challenge yourself. He also took us along on our first multi-pitch route while showing us the techniques in a very reliable manner. Philippe was the perfect instructor for us and a very kind person, we absolutely recommend climbing with him in the beautiful Gorge.


  • Phillipe took my girlfriend and I out for our first experience of lead climbing and it was so much better than we had hoped for! Phillipe was incredibly friendly and put us at ease instantly. He has great knowledge of the area and tailored the day so we were really challenged, but always felt we were in very safe hands. It was a pleasure to spend a day with Phillipe and we couldn't recommend him highly enough!


  • I joined a group of three and had the experience of a lifetime! Philippe was extremely professional, very safety aware and an excellent teacher as I had no previous experience of abseiling. I had an amazing time and will remember it forever.
    Many thanks to everyone.


  • Phillipe is a great guy and very knowledgeable. He talks us through how to do everything ourselves so we actually learnt as well!
    The places that he took us were so beautiful and we had a great time. I would definitely recommend. He also has great english so that helps if you dont speak alot of French!
