    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 Vilaplana

     

    This was an amazing trip. Marc was very responsive before the trip to understand what we want and to design a trip around it. He was also great at reacting on the fly to any requests we had the day of. He is a super fun guy to climb with. Overall, I highly recommend Marc.

    I would highly recommend Marc for climbers of all levels. He can provide you with all your equipment needs and is a great teacher that speaks fluent english, spanish, and catalan. We had excellent communication together through the explore-share app and also personal email. I received specific information on how to meet Marc from the R5-GFC line from Placa Espanya in Barcelona to the estacion Monistrol de Montserrat. I was picked up at the station in Marc\'s car and we drove up to the Monastery and parked. From there we rode a funicular from the Monastery to easy access trails to all of our climbs. As an experienced climber away on vacation with my family, I was able partner up with Marc and lead as many pitches as I wanted! I benefited from Marc\'s expertise as a rock climbing guide and rock climbing beta. Additionally, Marc is a local and provided me with information about the area and potential future trips. I would highly recommend using Marc as a guide. Paul Connecticut, USA

    Marc was a fantastic guide for our two days of climbing. We were visiting Barcelona from Los Angeles, and my twin 16 year olds are experienced indoor climbers and relatively new to outdoor lead climbing. Marc made everything easy,
