Rock Guide

I entered the world of climbing 18 years ago, and it quickly captivated me to the extent that I now spend all my free time climbing and in the mountains. Since that moment, it has become my lifestyle and a means of personal and professional growth. Caring, discovering, enjoying, and immersing myself in nature through climbing and mountaineering is what makes me feel alive.

I started working as a guide in 2016 in Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici. I have guided Norway (Lofoten Islands), Chile (North Patagonia), and Spain (Picos de Europa, Ordesa i Monteperdido, Montserrat, and the rest of Catalonia). Moreover, I have participated in the creation, organization, and direction of some sporting events related to climbing and mountaineering, as well as state climbing competitions.

Currently, I offer guiding services, climbing training courses for all levels, and climbing coaching in Catalonia, and occasionally in other locations around Spain. The activities can be personalized or conducted in groups and may include sport climbing, multi-pitch climbing, traditional climbing, self-rescue courses, and mountain ridge courses spanning one or several days.

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.
