Mountain Guide

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 this trip



Marc was a great guide for our inexperienced group - he chose great routes, quickly increasing the difficulty of what he saw we could handle, so it was never boring. He is very experienced, and speaks great english, which was very useful when asking or listening for directions in more intense situations, as there were no miscommunications. This helped a lot as some members of our group had never climbed before, but at no point we felt insecure. I would definitely hire him again if I'll find myself in that part of the world.



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



Marc was excellent in explaining all, very patient, fun and easy-going. I really recommend this activity with him!



He was a fantastic guide! He passed on to us his passion for the mountains and the technique to enjoy it.



My friend and I visited Spain from the US. Marc took us to rock climb outdoors for the first time in Monsterrat! It was an amazing experience. Marc went above and beyond to make our experience safe and super fun! He had all the proper equipment and as a first-time outdoor rock climbing experience, we felt so safe! He took amazing photos for us too. Oh, and he was super patient with us! Thank you, Marc!!
