AEGM Rock Climbing Guide
Ever since I was a kid I have been in contact with nature, and this has been my environment. Family traditions led to my first steps in the hiking world. I discovered wonderful places and learned to enjoy and respect the mountains. Still vivid in my memories are the ascents around Ordesa NP and the Catalan Pyrenees during my childhood.
At the age of eighteen I took my first steps in rock climbing. I dedicated some years climbing traditional classic routes, with the Montsec range as my school. With the experience gained I widened my horizons and started discovering new walls: Ordesa, Puig Campana, Penyal d'Ifach, Los Mallos de Riglos, Montrebei, Terradets...
In 2000, I got my Civil Engineer degree. I then spent my holidays climbing. At this point I started exploring the big possibilities France and its walls opened up: Verdon, Vercors, Jonte...
In 2002 I went on a one-year trip to Australia, but without climbing. After that year I realized rock climbing was my real passion. At then started spending as much time as I had climbing. My climbing trips starting taking me further and further. It was in Switzerland where I discovered my favorite climbing terrain: the amazing limestone walls of Wendenstöcke, Rätikon, Sanetsch... After that, new destinations kept coming: UEA, Jordan, Morocco, Dolomites, Sardinia, Corsica...
Finally, I decided to become a Climbing Guide and offer all my climbing experience to you.
My formal training started in 2011, as I became a Climbing Monitor of the High Mountain Catalan Academy (ECAM). Just after that, in 2012, I got my Climbing Sport Technician degree.
Not satisfied with that, I continued my training to get the highest climbing degree available in Spain. In the spring of 2014 I finished my training and became a Climbing Superior Sport Technician.

Marc was an awesome guide. I highly recommend anyone in Costa Brava to check out Via ferrata. I had the best time and I owe that to Marc.
I\'ve booked Marc to be my guide four different times now. The first time, with my teenaged daughter, to do the Via Ferrata at Cala del Moli. I\'ve done ferratas before, but she hasn\'t, so we wanted to make use of his experience to give my daughter the best possible experience. Frankly, it was excellent. Next, I went climbing with Marc. Again, excellent. He quickly got to know my capabilities, limitations and specific goals. In one day we knocked off three different routes, exceeding my expectations. On another trip to the country, I hired Marc to be my climbing guide again, this time on two different days to two new climbing areas. Our previous experience together let us hit the ground running perfectly. He had picked some specific routes that he knew would suit me well, again exceeding my expectations for the trip. So, to sum it up, I\'ve been on four different trips with Marc (Via ferrata in Cala Molí, and climbing in Monserrat, Roca del Arcs, and Rocamaura), each and every one of them has been excellent. So, when I say that I recommend him highly, know that this is based on more than just one experience.
Marc is a professional and very knowledgeable tour guide. He ensured: we had the proper equipment; we understood the trek; we were safe; we had fun.
I would absolutely recommend Marc to anyone looking for adventure in the Barcelona/Costa Brava area. We had an amazing and one of a kind experience and were able to see the coastline from an incredible perspective. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and FUN! I can’t recommend this experience enough!
Hicimos la vía ferrata de Sant Feliu de Guíxols y todo fué perfecto. Marc transmite toda la seguridad y confianza que necesitamos los primerizos. Además, dejarte guiar por alguien que ves que lleva las montañas y la naturaleza dentro enriquece más la experiencia. Ya estamos pensando en repetir porque nos ha enganchado!
Me and my boyfriend had a perfect climbing via ferrata experience with Marc as our guide in Sant Feliu de Guíxols. As we have not been doing via ferrata in Spain before Marc made us feel safe about the whole thing. To find a guide that could customize the trip for just us two was exactly what we wanted. We highly recommend him!
two friends and I did a via ferrata trip at Costa brava and he was a great guide!! He was encouraging and a great teacher. He even picked us up from the train station! overall a really fun experience, I would highly recommend going on a climbing trip with Marc!!
