I am Marco, and I am an UIAGM certified mountain guide since 2003. I started rock climbing when I was 14, and at the age of 20 I climbed the great Californian walls of El Capitan. Then i explored Patagonia, climbing the mythical Fitz Roy. I have also opened new routes in the Moroccan High Atlas and in the Alps.
My passion for the mountains drives me to work throughout the year, looking for new adventures. Depending on the season, I take my clients rock climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, freeriding, hiking... Either in the Alps, since i'm based in the Monte Rosa area, or in many other countries, in different continents.
The mountain as a playground has no limits!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
