What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Argentina



Merlin was a fabulous guide! Not only is he a super accomplished climber, but he is also personable and fun to spend the day with. We have some climbing experience, and Merlin selected sport climbing that was a fun challenge for our skill level. We 100% recommend him as a guide.



Merlin was great—very knowledgeable, encouraging, and safe. I would definitely climb with him again and recommend his services very, very highly!



Amazing experience with Craig, he brought me and a friend of mine at la ventana to do beginner routes, teaching us how to climb while enjoying breathtaking view. Greatly recommend.



We had a great time!


We had a great experience climbing with Merlín in El Chalten. He did a great job of teaching us the basics and giving us a variety of climbs to do. The booking process was pretty straightforward, and overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
