Trainer, speaker, high altitude trek guide, columnist, author and tester of specialized equipment, Manu is recognized as an excellent pedagogue.
Since the age of 19, he has traveled the world to practice rock climbing, ice climbing and trekking. He also guided many high altitude expeditions. For him, no sporting challenge is impossible … if we prepare seriously.
In 2008, he attempted the first Quebec expedition without trace and without extra oxygen on Manaslu Mountain (8165 m), in Nepal. In 2013, he designed and realized the Forest Gump challenge, a solo 24-hour race without stopping. No medals, no trophies. The reward? The satisfaction of surpassing oneself and the learning that such a challenge entails.
He regularly tests various outdoor equipment for many manufacturers and assists in the development and optimization of certain parts.
He is known for his integrity, openness and contagious good humour. He loves sharing his knowledge and experiences in order to give a smile to all those who go to the mountains or who want to enjoy life to the fullest and exploit their full potential.
