General information

Rock climbing lessons are a great way to learn about rock climbing and the vertical world. This is an unmissable Chamonix activity for children and adults alike. Small children can have exciting adventures while developing their balance thanks to specialist teaching, while older children and adults can improve their skills of anticipation, learning climbing techniques such as belaying, setting up stances and abseiling.

The lessons take place around Argentière : Vallorcine, la Joux, Dalles vertes - Lognan. To subscribe to a climbing lesson in les Gaillands at two steps from Chamonix, refer to our rock climbing lessons in Chamonix
