Highlights

 
     

    I invite you to live 7 days of intensive rock climbing where you will not only learn new techniques of big wall climbing. I will also teach you some knots and security skills so you can cope with multi-pitch routes in a safe way. Without a doubt the best place to practice is the Cochamo Valley, in the Chilean Patagonia. A world-class big wall climbing spot thanks to its beauty and high quality granite walls.

    As for the requirements to participate in this course, a basic level of climbing will be necessary (5.10). It is also important that you have some multi-pitch routes knowledge as well as a good fitness level. Also keep in mind that we must walk about 4 hours per day to reach the walls. In addition, each participant must carry their own backpacks and personal equipment (harness, helmet, tents, etc.)

    You can find the day-by-day program at the end of this description. Finally remember that the best period to take this big wall climbing course is during the summer. Although the date of the course depends on weather, the ideal month is usually February.

    Want to improve your current skills? So fill out the form and get in touch with me. I am sure this course will help you achieve bigger climbing goals!!!

    Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

    I was born in 1990, and I always been surrounded by mountains, with family and friends in the Andes.

    I did the first Chilean ascent to Cerro Torre via Ferrari route, four ascents to Mt, Fitz Roy, more than 12 to Torres del Paine and the first alpine traverse of the three towers.

    I also climbed in the Himalayas, Yosemite, and other Andean countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.

    I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in 2017 in Bolivia, and completed the AIARE level 2 avalanche training.

    I work together with my brother Juan (we are the Señoret Brothers). Contact me if you want to discover the most beautiful mountain spots in Chile!
