Description

Mountaineering is the kind of activity that can never truly be perfected. There is always more to learn. There are always ways to improve upon your existing skills and techniques. As a result, I am happy to offer this advanced level mountaineering course in the beautiful Sierra de Bejar in Spain.

Perfect for experienced mountaineers, this course will not only help you improve on the skills you already have, but also teach you some new ones. Hence making you a much better climber who can take on bigger and more technically challenging peaks in the future.

Some of what you will taught during this course includes the following.

  • Rappel descent

  • Securing a rappel

  • Assembly of handrails and fixed ropes

  • Risk prevention

  • Basic insurance systems

  • Personal and partner safety techniques

This course will take place entirely in the mountains of the Sierra de Bejar. Thus giving you the chance to learn entirely by doing. I believe this is the perfect method for already experienced climbers to add more to their existing skill set.

Participants on this trip should already have prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

If you are a climber who wishes to learn more, so they can take on more challenging peaks, this is the course for you. To join me, just send a request.

Are you a mountaineering beginner? Then come and join me on this weekend long introductory level course, which also takes place in the Sierra de Bejar.

Mountain Guide

I am an experienced mountaineer and one of Spain’s central zone most renowned ice climbers. I have opened several climbing routes of great difficulty, like El Escudo, El Último Tercio, Cristal de Sevres, Vía de los Salmantinos, Cascadas de Canalizos, Cascadas de Peña Negra, among many others.

I am also an experienced rock climber, and I have opened more than 30 climbing routes, specially in the Sierra de Béjar and Gredos area. I have climbed several peaks in the Picos de Europa mountain range, (Naranjo de Bulnes, Peña Vieja, Horcados Rojos, etc. Pyrenees Tozal de Mallo, Aneto, Perdido, Midi D'ossau).

I have climbed important peaks in the Alps, like Eiger, Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Aguille Verte, Courtes, Les Droites and Grandes Jorases. I have been part of expeditions to Kenya. I reached 13 summits between 4800 and 5191m and I have also climbed in the Andes of Peru, where I reached the summit of El Pisco (5700m) and Huascarán (6876 m). I climbed to the Chopiqalqui summit (6700m) on the day from the base camp.

I joined the Spanish High Mountain School in 1981, and since then I have been working as a sports technician in rock climbing and mountaineering, teaching and directing several courses. For more than 10 years, I have been teaching climbing techniques to the Portuguese Fusiliers elite group of the Portuguese army, and for more than twenty years to the Police School of Avila.

Among my most outstanding students I can mention Juanito Oiarzabal, the first Spanish climber to conquer the fourteen eight-thousanderes and sixth in the world to make it, and Joao Garcia, also the first Portuguese climber to conquer the fourteen eight-thousanders.

Today I am the Thecnical Director of the COSUS ALPINO staff , where I put my extensive technical knowledge at the service of our clients.

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.
