Guided Adventure in the Verdon Gorge


Posted on 2012-06-10 - filed under testimonials

If you are considering scratching the itch that is the thought of Verdon- DO IT!

And if you go climbing with Alan, you'll be rewarded with a world of knowledge and passion that he has for this place and for climbing.

I have never climbed with a guide before having always just gone climbing with friends of friends and strangers whenever travelling to new places. I chose to this time as I was pressed for time (being there for work, I only had two weekends) and having not really climbed much in the time leading up, I was concerned committing myself to something above my ability. As a result, not only did I get an opportunity to climb in one of the most mindblowing places in the world (and i've been climbing over 8 years now in Australia, Thailand, Vietnam, US, Sweden, UK, Germany), I now have amazing memories of climbing with one of the coolest people i've met in my travels.

Alan, besides being a VERY talented climber is also a great coach with a wealth of experience; moreover, he is just a fascinating person that you can spend hours and hours talking with and listening to. And watching him climb, too, is a pleasure.

I'm looking forward to the next time I get a chance to look up at 200+ m of that magnificent limestone and also catch up on all the adventures.

Thanks again, Alan!
