Mountaineering is the essence of the guide profession. To guide you on sharp edge, glaciers or summits that’s why I have chosen this profession. I particularly like the Écrins mountain range, with its wild side, which provides a sense of adventure for all trips on its summits. But I obviously know other mountain ranges with amazing and magnificent routes. You cannot remain insensitive to the crossing of the great peak of “La Meije”, or the “Mer de Glace” (sea glacier) climbing route at the “Grépon”. Here are some ideas that we could achieve together. Any other ideas? Write me here.
