Description

Are you a fan of climbing, but are looking for a variation on traditional rock climbing? Then bouldering may be an activity well worth your attention. And on this full-day trip, which will last for approximately 6 hours, I would like to guide you on a bouldering trip around the beautiful Argentinean town of El Chalten.

Located in the world famous region of Patagonia, El Chalten is a great place to visit, explore and enjoy. And while this bouldering trip lasts a full day, I have no doubt that spending some additional days in El Chalten will definitely be worth it.

When it comes to the bouldering on this trip, you will not be disappointed. There is a wide array of enormous granite blocks just waiting to be climbed. Furthermore, because those boulders range in difficulty from V1 to V15, this trip is open to people of all skill levels. So, regardless if you are a beginner or expert, you can have an amazing experience. However, all participants on this trip should be in good physical condition.

Bouldering around El Chalten is the kind of excursion you will never forget. From the feeling of scaling giant boulders to the magnificent views of the forests, peaks, rivers, valleys and lakes of Patagonia, you will have a great time. To join me on this full-day trip, just send a request.

There is also a half-day version of this trip, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province. I am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering. Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.
