Description

The region of Araucania is located in central Chile and extends from the Pacific coast to the Andean volcanoes, providing the perfect environment for the practice of mountaineering.

That is why I have planned this 5-day course that takes place in the volcanic area of the Nevados de Sollipulli, Auracania. It is an activity aimed at mountain lovers who want to enjoy it in winter conditions.

The course is designed based on a 5-day field trip where we will review and teach both practical and theoretical aspects of mountaineering. 

During these 5 days I’ll teach you the necessary techniques to climb mountains with total autonomy and confidence. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to put into practice what you’ve learned in a real mountain environment. We’ll make an ascent in the snow-covered mountains of Sollipulli.

COURSE CONTENT

The content of the course will be divided into four parts. In the first one, we will see some general winter mountaineering techniques, such as clothing and equipment We will also review basic notions of mountain knots, mountain safety: objective and subjective risk and finally we will also talk about camps.

In the second part, we will focus on individual techniques. These include self-arrest, progression techniques on snow slopes up to 60º, mixed, French and traction techniques. We will also go over descent techniques, hiking and route selection techniques.

At the third stage, we will study anchors and security systems in snow and ice, progression with rope, belaying and rappelling techniques. Finally, in the fourth part of the course we will go over glacial progression and crevasse rescue, basic rescue knots, glacier rescue procedures, single and multiple pulley.

As you can see it’s a great opportunity to get the skills and techniques you need to start venturing into amazing mountaineering adventures. Join me on this course in Araucania and learn the basics of such an exciting activity.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
