Marco is an amazing guide! He was so kind and knowledgeable. I am a mostly gym V4-V6 climber and I went with a friend who is new to climbing, and Marco found plenty of routes for both of us and he taught us new skills. I felt safe and supported with Marco, and hope to climb with him again soon — highly recommend!!
