Experience the thrill of rock climbing in safety with an Mountain Guide who will teach you the basics of an activity that is much more than just a sport!
Climbing will leave you with unforgettable memories, discovering the vertical dimension and challenging your own capabilities. A sport for everyone, ideal for building both physical and mental strength.
Climbing is in fact instinctive, an innate desire to overcome the vertical challenges that voluntarily or by chance we find in our paths. It’s a game that children, once grown up, transform into a sport.
We offer short courses in the form of “climbing days”, courses and internships, all aimed equally at both beginners and the more experienced.
The various possibilities:
You will have the opportunity to climb in a group always with the assistance of an Mountain Guide, both to get started, to improve your skills or to get to know new places assisted by an expert who also has knowledge of the new crags.
Technical and safety days:
Day courses dedicated entirely to the technical aspects of safety, learning about belay and rope technique, giving you a chance to learn the basics or improve your knowledge of safety.
Self-rescue on the wall:
Open to all but aimed specifically at climbers and Rope Access workers. This course teaches participants the skills required to intervene when necessary to rescue their partner in the event of difficulty or a minor accident during a big wall ascent or while carrying out suspended work.
Basic sports climbing course:
These are courses aimed at beginners in which particular importance is given to teaching the fundamentals of climbing technique. You will learn the use of the equipment by climbing on some of the most famous crags of Tuscany and Liguria. For the technical aspect of the instruction we follow the MOUNTAIN GUIDES technical manual together with our exclusive P.E.R manual.
You will learn basic safety manoeuvres and the use of equipment by climbing in the most famous rock gyms in Tuscany and Liguria. For teaching purposes, we will use the technical texts of the Italian Alpine Guides and our exclusive P.E.R. Manual.
Climbing Internships for Intermediate level:
Aimed at those who have already attended a basic course or have previous climbing experience.
A minimum technical level of 5c is required. Particular attention is given to advanced climbing technique such as the triangle method and lateral movement while also taking into consideration the tactical-mental aspect which is so indispensable for climbing increasingly difficult routes Time will also be dedicated to particular climbing styles, such as cracks and granite as well related topics such as bolting outdoor climbing sites.
Several days of "full immersion" climbing in some of the most famous climbing locations in the world where you will climb routes from 20 to 300 meters in length, both as second and lead climber: Verdon, Vercors, Calanques, Sardinia, Greece, Sicily, Wenden, Ratikon, Valle dell' Orco, Val di Mello, Briançon, Yosemite and all the places where hard rock climbing is practiced on both bolted and “trad” routes.

This will include belay anchor building, the use of fast protection and the various methodologies for belaying both the first and second climbers, both from a theoretical perspective but above all with hands-on practical instruction. The practical lessons will be conducted climbing classic routes in the Apuan Alps. Course participants need a basic knowledge of climbing.
