What people are saying about Rock Climbing | Patagonia



Our Guide Juan did an excellent job . He was courteous, informative and a pleasure to spend the day with . He’s an experienced climber and knows his way around the mountains . I would definitely contact Juan again for any future adventures . Well worth every penny !



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!!



Al Borde de la Concordia on Cerro Lopez was a very cool experience for parachuting into a new area far from home. Craig made it seamless, and we had a really good day on some fine rock in a spectacular setting.



I didnt choose the optimal time for my trip. Knowing that, I was kinda anxious about how it would turn out, especially when there was really bad weather and snowfall when I arrived in Bariloche. That said, Craig did its best to still make the best out of the situation. We shuffled the dates around and split the 4 days into 2&2. I just came back from the first 2 days and have two more to go, for which I'm very excited. I'm well aware that this kind of shuffling is only possible because it isnt high season yet and am very thankful for that. In terms of the climbing: I communicated my skill level to Craig and my ambition to learn the basics of trad climbing. I think his judgement in planning the itinirary was very sensible. Craig managed to push me way out of my comfort zone without completely overwhelming me. This allowed me to learn a ton in just two days and leave me hungry for more. If you wan't to "learn the ropes" of trad climbing, stick your hands into granite cracks, send the peaks of frey and have a fantastic time doing it, Craig is the guy to book your trip with
