Fantastic experience with Roberto! He showed us some tips and tricks related to trad climbing and abseiling in addition to safely guiding us up and down the beautiful Naranjo de Bulnes. Highly recommend this trip and Roberto as a guide!



I had a great time practicing my Trad climbing and technique on the Calcena limestone. There are so many Trad and Sport routes and the scenery and isolation is wonderful.
