Discover the first edition of the Anzère Climbing Festival, to be held on 27 and 28 July 2024. A unique event in Switzerland, it aims to promote climbing, bring climbing enthusiasts together to share their experiences and spend a great weekend on the limestone of the Valais. By bringing together climbing enthusiasts and the curious, we aim to offer a participatory and enriching experience for all participants. Workshops and courses, film screenings and talks by guides and climbers will be organised throughout the weekend. So don't hesitate to sign up for the courses that suit your level and interests on Saturday. The rest of the programme is open to all without registration.

Fear of falling
The fear of falling when climbing is an emotion that affects all climbers. This fear, although natural and beneficial for safety, can become a significant obstacle to progress and improving climbing performance.
Fortunately, it is entirely possible to work on this fear to reduce it and, as a result, increase your chances of success.
This course will be taught by a climbing instructor, as well as a kinesiologist and hypnosis practitioner, who will provide a real understanding of the fear mechanism.
The 4-hour workshop on the fear of falling in climbing focuses on several essential aspects to help climbers overcome this apprehension. Here's an overview of the key elements you'll encounter:
- Understanding fear - psychological aspects
- Understanding and assimilating the mechanisms of falling and belaying a fall - practical fall exercises
- Dynamic belaying
