Introduction to rock climbing (english version)

I spent 3 nice days with Anna, Josef and their father Enda.

It was the first experience climbing for the two young ones!

A first day at Les Gaillands in Chamonix gave us a good opportunity to practice rock climbing, belaying, rappelling down...

We then went to Vallorcine on the second day.

And finally, after these two days practicing, they were ready to do the Via Corda des Mottets, wich is more likely a mountaineering ridge above les Bois. It was a beautiful introduction to climbing, and I hope this two mini-mountaineers will come back motivated for the next summer!

Sorry Josef for the pink helmet! I promise I'll do better tomorrow!

Anna seems to enjoy it as well.

Josef is doing great rappelling down...

So is Anna doing, belaying her brother!

Via Corda des Mottets (blue is way better!)

They deserved a good rest half-way up the Via Corda.

In front of les Drus.

Almost there!

Josef!!!!!! I saw you pulling on your sisters' rope!

But Anna doesn't care!

And la buvette des Mottets was probably the best part of the climb!
