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.

What people are saying about Marc



Marc est un guide génial, très agréable et très professionnel. Il est venu avec un collègue pour nous encadrer comme nous étions 8. Ils nous on fait passer un super moment tous les deux, sur cette via ferrata bien conçu, et parfois assez engagé, mais avec possibilité d'éviter les passage difficile. Marc a été au top, accueil, équipements conseil, et même photo et vidéo. Un grand merci a lui et son collègue pour ces super moment.



Amazing Via Feratta rout with the most professional guid Marc Vilaplana


I think it would be hard to give a short review about my experience with Marc. This was an experience of a life time. Marc is so knowledgeable and patient. He allowed us to ask questions about the history and culture of the towns and villages. He made me feel safe when climbing. He has so much knowledge about the mountain that he had back up routes for the weather. He went over safety a few times which made me feel that much better. He asked what type of climbing I was looking to do and customize my experience to what I wanted and needed. One of the NICEST people you will ever meet. I live in the states. Someone local to me suggested climbing with Marc. I rearranged my entire Europe vacation around climbing with Marc and I’m SO thankful I did. Best experience I’ve ever had. My friend highly recommended Marc and I HIGHLY recommend Marc. I will be back to climb with him again. I’ve already tried to figure out next steps. That is how meaningful this experience has been to me.



Marc created an amazing 3-day trip catered to my climbing goals. I am an experienced climber so we also did wilderness camping. He is super professional, an excellent climbing partner, and a joy to hang out with for 3 days! I saw so much of Catalonia thanks to his guidance, top notch experience!!



It was an excellent trip, Marc is a perfect guide, very interesting et highly skilled. I recommend Marc and the climbing spot.
