Description

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!!!

Mountain Guide

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!

What people are saying about Cristobal

Cristobel was a very knowledgeable guide and he provided a good level of encouragement to push me through hard sections of climbing rather than letting me give up. Unfortunately, my original guide for two days of climbing was unable to make it and so I was rebooked for 1 day of climbing with Cristobel. What was upsetting about this was that it was more expensive to complete 1 day of climbing compared to the two days I was originally booked in for. I ended up having to pay more money for half the climbing. I think Explore-Share could improve by having a more consistent price structure for the guides, or at least being clear about why one guide is more expensive.

Great guide. Picked a well-rounded spot for a new group, with numerous options. Understanding of our lack of time at altitude. Great guy.

Excellent day at Portillo with Cristobal. He gave us several options in a planning session the night before. He also communicated well on the day of about current conditions and what we were seeing. We ended up doing a secondary objective due to what we saw in the field.
