Whether you're a beginner or an advanced climber, the Gaillands climbing school will help you to improve your technique and introduce you to some new sensations enabling you to go higher in altitude and difficulty.
if there is a mythical place of climbing it is here. The rocks of Gaillands have been frequented, equipped and maintained for more than 80 years by the guides of the Company.
It was in 1927 that the guide Alfred Couttet said "Champion" he had for the first time the idea of exerting his balance, flexibility and physical strength on this compact rock.

facing the Mont Blanc, offering a pedagogy adapted to each person.
