Description

Come mountaineering with me on some of the greatest routes through the Pyrenees on an extended day adventure! I have plenty of incredible options to choose from that include unbelievable sights and perfect opportunities to explore the infamous mountain range.

I will design a trip specifically for you, catered to your personal goals and the abilities you want to achieve.

I will teach you the fundamentals of winter mountaineering and help you improve your skills so you can have even more fun and adventure out in the mountains!

From the vast mountain range of the Serra del Cadi to the grandeur of Aneto (3,404m), the tallest mountain in the Pyrenees, you can take on the most intriguing corridors, goulottes, and north faces in all of Spain.

Depending on your fitness and skillset, we have routes varying in length and grade. Most routes have a moderate difficulty, such as the Corredor N at Margalida and the Couloir de Gaube of the Vignemale trip. Others have a higher difficulty, including Corredor Inserso and Hypergoulotte of the Tuc del Mig de la Tallada.

Some of the suggested routes not listed above are Mont Perdut, Pena Telera, and Midi d’Ossau, but of course there are much, much more. I would be happy to take through the process of planning and preparing a program of your choice!

While the routes vary in length and application, they all have a moderate amount of difficulty. You should come prepared in good physical condition.

Book now and start packing for your personalized mountaineering adventure in the one of a kind Pyrenees Mountains!

If you want less planning and more skiing, come with me on a great ski touring circuit in Carros de Foc! Or I can guide you to the summit of tallest mountain in the Pyrenees – Aneto!

About the guide

I love what I do and love to transmit my passion while guiding.

After touring the world fulfilling my dreams, I have put together all the knowledge gained and a strong background as a mountain guide to become one of the most versatile, dedicated and professional guides in the Pyrenees.

My resume has technical training in mountain medicine, snow studies, search and rescue complete training, meteorology and botany.

I spend the winters enjoying the unique snow conditions in the Aran Valley, as a ski touring and freeride Guide, and summers climbing the countless areas of excellent rock, either granite, limestone or conglomerate in the Pyrenees. I also spend a lot of time in Iceland during the summer guiding my friends and clients across these incredible landscapes.

While traveling the world, I make every effort to show the beauty of the landscapes, the quality of the rock and the best snow in the Pyrenees to everyone who wants to check them out.

Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Pyrenees!

Trip of a lifetime. As with all things mountains, things didn’t go exactly according to plan, weather forced changes, us tired and slow clients forced changes and roger handled these in stride and adjusted the plans seamlessly. He knew when to push and when to back off. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the mountains, history and the local plants and wildlife. I had high expectations for the trip and it was even better than I had imagined, if you’re thinking of doing a trip with Roger, I highly recommend him as a guide in whichever discipline you prefer.

Awesome trip! Thanks to Roger for guiding me to the summit on a really extreme day of wind and rain. Unique and epic day out on the mountain. Also thanks to Maca at Explore Share for helping with the booking to ensure everything went smoothly, especially during these uncertain times. Great service!

It's a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you're reasonably fit (but you don't need to be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I'd strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn't get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches

We had a very good trip — thank you!   Roger was really a great guide and we were very pleased working with Nacho as well.  The itinerary went well and Roger did a good job adjusting the itinerary as needed. Thanks again!

The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow.  The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.

Roger, our guide, really made the trip memorable for us. He had a challenge every day to plan the route according to the snow conditions, temperatures (it was quite warm), the skills and endurance of our kids and keeping it fun for all of us. It really showed that he put thought into planning each day and wanted to find the best route for us to enjoy the backcountry and get some good skiing!  He knows the area so well and every day he planned was awesome. The helicopter trip. It was planned by Roger and something we never would have thought of doing for our children's first backcountry experience but it was absolutely the best. "Double thumbs up" according to Willy, our son. The location that Roger picked out for the skiing and the hotel, Bahns de Tredos, was perfect for being in the backcountry all day and then returning to the hotel for a delicious late lunch, thermal hot tub soak and then a gourmet dinner all in a hut/backcountry setting.  We felt very spoiled!

Roger has the 3Ps, Passionate, Professional and Prudent. I did tour skiing in the Pyrenees (Beciver 2660 m) and the tour was amazing. He adapted his rhythm to the rhythm of the group and he is prudent something that I really appreciate. Going up was hard but then once you get to the top you enjoy the view and you forgot your name. I would totally recommend him. Is not that easy to find trustful guides. He is your man!!!
