GE-visIci – Weekly climbing courses!

As part of the GE-visIci program, take part in weekly climbing courses in Geneva.

Join the second edition of this absolutely innovative program and enjoy climbing, meeting other young people and discovering other cultures!

What’s the program:

Safety first 😉 it may be a revision for you, but it’s necessary..

How to equip yourself, rope up, partner-check, belay your partner,… and according to how fast you learn and progress, you will learn to belay leads and lead climbing.

Then there are the strategic and tactical aspects of climbing 😉 How to read your route, anticipate your progress, save your energy, optimize your movements, develop your repertoire of movements…

But that’s not all!

We’ll be doing lots of climbing games, the aim of which, in addition to climbing, will be to make it easier for your non-French-speaking climbing mates to learn French. You’ll see, it’ll be fun!
