Chamonix Granite Rock Climbing weekend

Learn to climb granite with a UIAGM mountain guide in Chamonix

This long weekend course is the perfect opportunity to improve your rope work, develop your route finding skills and learn new techniques over just three days.

You'll consolidate all the essential skills that you need for climbing long granite routes without having to take lots of time of work or commit to an expensive trip.

On this course you will discover or improve, but most importantly enjoy, climbing pitch after pitch of cracks, slabs, chimneys and dihedrals!

Chamonix is legendary for its varied and challenging climbing routes. Some easily accessible on foot, others requiring a cable car ride high into the mountains. During the three day course, you'll get a taster of both - and we guarantee you'll be back for more!
