The GenevaRocks association offers indoor and outdoor climbing courses and private lessons for all levels and ages, in Geneva and elsewhere. It is a member of Genève Montagne.

 

While respecting everyone’s pace, the transmission of technical and safety knowledge is at the heart of GenevaRocks’ activity in order to allow participants to gain autonomy and be aware of their abilities and responsibilities. The association encourages encounters between people of different origins and languages, family climbing, as well as the respect and protection of nature.

Given the state of emergency which has been declared by Switzerland due to COVID-19, no activity will take place during the time of these measures. To help you get over the confinement period, we have added some links to movies and others on the practical information page
