Alex is an absolutely amazing guide. Very knowledgeable, safe, strong climber with a great sense of humour. He picked great climbs for us and taught us many things about outdoor trad climbing. Would highly recommend.
I booked a four days trip with Alex to climb Tolima. Alex is a very experienced mountain guide and also very socialable. He knows to ask you the right questions to make your climb successfully and well organised.
Unfortunately I got sick and had to break up at 3700 metres. Alex cared the rest of the time about me while I was recovering in the mountain hut and later in the hotel.
Alex is also a great doctor not only a excellent mountain guide. Thx for taking care of me. See you soon, Felix
I had a blast! While challenging (both physically and mentally) the guides supported me throughout the entire trip. It was great to make the summit, and get some of the most spectacular views that only Colombia can offer. Totally recommend doing this expedition!!
This was a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors close to Bogota. Alex was a fantastic guide, very capable, and found some routes that fit my abilities and challenged me. It seems that the entire Suesca climbing community knows each other and everyone was super-friendly. I can’t say enough about the day I spent out there, it’s the best day I’ve had climbing in a very long time!
The trip was great and Alex did a fantastic job. Everything worked out fine and we had a great adventure!
We summited Nevado del Tolima last August. We really had a great trip and Alex is a very good guide. You can see part of the ascent and summit in the following video, starting on minute 8.40: https://youtu.be/8e89-dL8k_8?t=8m39s
We did Nevado Tolima’s South Face ascent from Ibagué.
It was very good. Alex and the cook were professional and fit.
The only thing was it was almost impossible to do it 3 days. 4 days would have been better and it would have been nice to know that before we started.
But I really liked the trip. It was hard though.
