About the Guide

 
 

I started climbing when I was a teenager and have been in love with the mountains ever since. As I walked down from the Mont Blanc summit, I decided that I wanted to be a mountain guide.

I live in Benasque, a wonderful mountain village in the Pyrenees. It is the Spanish Chamonix. You have many different mountain activities to do here, with challenges for all levels.

I am mountain leader with UIMLA certification by the Mountain School of Benasque. I am member of the AEGM (Association of Spanish Mountain Guides).

I started guiding in 2007 and have been in the Pyrenees, Alps, Andes, Himalayas, Caucasus, etc.

There is no such thing as zero risk in mountain activities but I can assure you that your safety will be my top priority. Hire a mountain professional with experience and qualifications.

Would you like to climb the summit you have always wanted? Do you want to climb that mountain with a qualified professional who will focus on your safety?

Relax, enjoy the climbing and make your dreams come true! I´ll take care of the rest.
