Piolets Jeunes

Piolets Jeunes

There are times when I am profoundly/particularly inspired watching the achievements of renowned athletes, but there are also other moments when that inspiration is found elsewhere – watching those who are not famous at all and who are just starting to discover an activity with passion. This is the case of the “Piolet Jeunes”, a particularly interesting initiative involving various mountaineering clubs from around France, which gather together 14-20 year old youths with the objective of initiating them in various alpine activities and sharing their adventures.

It’s all about climbing classic relatively easy routes in Chamonix and leaving a positive legacy for the next generation.
