Whether you are a complete beginner and want to make your first moves on rock, or if you are an advanced climber and you want to push your grade and take it to another level we can come up with a trip and a plan to make your experience one to remember. Chamonix is a really good place to be based with a huge variety of climbing on the door step. There are lots of crags and big cliffs throughout the valley on a variety of rock types.
Within a few hours drive there is some of the best sport climbing in the world. The south of France is brimming with world class multi-pitch routes.
I also offer rock climbing guiding anywhere in the world and have plenty of ideas for exciting climbing destinations.

Rock climbing in the alpine environment is rewarding and exhilarating. Climbing golden granite in the sun above a glacier is unforgettable. The Mont Blanc massif has a vast range of excellent mountain granite. With splitter cracks, technical slabs and edgy faces there is a bit of everything. You will not be disappointed.

Multipitch sport climbing In the Arve
The Chamonix valley crags offer a lot of great learning venues to practice skills rope work and movement. Only a short drive away the Arve Valley offers a lifetime of incredible Limestone. There are huge crags with big exposure that are really mini big walls.
I climb in the Arve valley a silly amount and I love inching my up a big limestone cliff on the famous "goute d'eau".
Goute d'eau (water droplet) is the name of the little pockety formations in the limestone that are caused by water drops falling from overhangs high above. The repeated dropping over thousands of years erodes into the limestone and creates these incredible little finger jugs. The goute d'eau are a classic feature on French limestone.
If goutes d'eau doesn't sound like your thing there are some juggier classics and routes that follow cracks, ledges and flakes.
I know the crags very well and know the best routes at all the grades, from grade 5's to 8a's.

Irish and UK rock
Climbing in Ireland is very special to me, as it is where I started. Having travelled a lot I really appreciate how unique it is. I have climbed very extensively all over Ireland and the rest of the UK. Venues like Fairhead, the Burren and Donegal are definitely worth a visit and the ambience and vibes of the venues will make an unforgettable trip.
