What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Bariloche



Craig was a phenomenal guide for the half-day we spent climbing. It had been a few months since I had last climbed and Craig was very attentive and paid a lot of attention to take me to a spot I would feel comfortable with. We had a great time climbing a lot of single pitch routes and just going over basics to make sure I knew what I was doing. I would highly recommend going with Craig if you have any interest in climbing in the area.



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 an amazing trip with Craig. He was incredibly professional and knowledgeable and we always felt in safe hands. The climbing was epic and the route selection was perfect, I definitely felt like I was able to try stuff which I wouldn't have the confidence to do on my own. An amazing experience which we wont forget! Thank you so much



We had a great day climbing in the Frey, Bariloche and was probably one of my favourite climbs of all time, only wish I had more time. Craig was an amazing guide, full of knowledge, experience and when I'm back I'll be going climbing with him again. Can't believe he is turning 60! He only looks 35 must be all that mountain air!!
