There are many ways to start mountaineering.
A first approach is best in small groups (collective formula) , for which you can chose amongst a list of 30 easy routes )(Number of people depending on the grade of the ascent - from 2 to 4). 5-day courses are great to improve knowledge, by practicing mountaineering techniques adapted to your skills and ability. Hiring a guide privately increases trust and friendship in a party, and often results in a long-life and very special relationship. The guide can thus chose a route adapted to the client's rythm and give appropriate advice to promote progress. Private guiding is without a doubt the best way to fulfill an amateur mountaineer's dreams. A climb, a summit of any grade is always an adventure to remember for ever.
