Bariloche is probably one of the best areas to enjoy rock climbing in South America. It is also a perfect place to get warmed up before attempting bigger challenges in Patagonia.

Furthermore, Bariloche offers several different sport climbing crags. All of them within 30 minutes radius from the city center. That is why I have planned these alpine climbing programs. All of them are suitable for day trips or to combine them in a multi-day trip.

The duration of each trip will depend on your wishes as well as your technical and physical level. Anyway, one of the highlights of Bariloche is the fact that there is something for everyone. From beginner climbers to experts!

One of my proposals is to climb in “Valle Encantado”, 60 km east of Bariloche. This rock climbing spot is one of the most scenic and amazing places of the region.

Another option is to spend one day in Piedras Blancas (White Rocks in English). I have no doubt you’ll enjoy a great rock climbing trip there. In addition, this place offers routes with the most excellent views of the Nahuel Huapi Lake.

There are many other options to go rock climbing in Bariloche. That way we can also head to Cerro Ventana, the Morehuapi or Laguna El Trebol.

The best season to come climb in these spots is during the Patagonian spring and summer. These months are also perfect to have some trekking time in, for example, the Frey Hut. You can check out the summer program I offer there.

So contact me now and let’s climb the best rock walls in Bariloche. As a local guide I know the place perfectly so I can help you find the best itinerary for you! I’ll be waiting for your message.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide



My name is Jorge, and I am one of the first IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Mountain Guides in Argentina. I got my full UIAGM-IFMGA certification in 2005. I was one of the pioneer mountain guides in Argentina and Chile to introduce Ski Mountaineering and Backcountry Skiing back in 1999.

In 2009, I became one of the first Argentines to work as a Ski Guide on the Antarctic Peninsula and ski peaks in that area. I helped, co-worked and guided ski athletes from Salomon, Arcteryx, Smith and the North face, such as Xavier de Le Rue, Luca de Bari, Eric Hjorleifson and other pro-athletes of the ski industry in the production of ski films in Argentina and Chile.

I have been guiding across Patagonia for more than 15 years now. In the past few years I have also guided in Antarctica, Norway and Iceland.

Patagonia is my home. This is where I started to develop most of my guiding skills and experiences at an early age. Today, I spend half of the year guiding overseas, and the other half guiding in Argentina and Chile.

Regarding my personal resume as a guide and sportsman, some of the highlights include classic Granite climbs in Yosemite National Park like the Half Dome Regular NW face in a day and Sentinel Rock (Herbert- Chouinard route); several ski mountaineering expeditions to Alaska including the inner Chugach range; the Wrangell's-Saint Elias range, spending two weeks in a tent in the Icefield, skiing couloirs and faces as much as we could. Other great mountaineering expeditions I went on include:
- A remote expedition to Mariano Moreno in the Patagonian Icefield
- Several rock climbs in Europe, like the Dolomites, Slovakia, French and Swiss Alps, and Spain
- Guiding the Mont Blanc ascent on skis
- Technical classic ice/rock Rebuffat- Terray on Pelerins in Chamonix
- Frendo Spur in Chamonix
- Fitz Roy and other satellites spires in Patagonia

I happily spend a lot of my time on skis, and guiding mostly technical backcountry and volcanoes in Patagonia.

I’m fluent in Spanish and English.
