Climbing Courses in Poland

I’ve been involved in Climbing Education since 2011 when I started teaching rock climbing (indoor&outdoor). Today I teach also trad climbing, dry tooling near of Kraków and Wrocław. Teaching outdoor skills and sharing my passion for the mountains is what drives me. climbing is a fantastic way to get fit, build strength and stamina, meet people and make new friends. Last but not least - Great adventure :-). Whether you are looking to learn the essential skills of rope work and belaying, boulder in the centre with confidence, take the next step into lead climbing or brush up on your skills & techniques, I have a course for you.

    Wojtek Kurtyka - 2016 Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement Award

    This coming April, we will be celebrating the different dimensions of alpinism, and more generally the 'mountain spirit', in a region that is emblematic of the values that we seek to promote, including sharing experiences, commitment, and innovation. We will be present in the area around the Piolets d’Or base camps in La Grave and the Lautaret col, in one of the most beautiful parts of France. Here at the heart of Ecrins National Park, we’ll follow in the footsteps of La Meije’s legendary 'Père Gaspard'.
