About the Guide

 
 

AAGM Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I´ve climbed all along Patagonia, reaching summits such as Cerro Torre, Cerro Fitz Roy, and it’s range. As sport climber I also faced challenges in different spots in Europe and USA.

After many years guiding, I also handle the logistic of the expeditions, and I like to give the best services to the people I guide.

I live and guide mostly in El Chaltén area, and I know every corner of the National Park. I like to plan every detail of the expeditions, and to propose customized programs according to the request and needs of each client.
