Description

Welcome to this fantastic intermediate mountaineering course in Ecuador, through which we’ll spend 6 days learning and practicing some alpine climbing techniques.

This course provides an introduction to the intermediate-moderate rock climbing level. Besides that, it perfectly works as a technical improvement of your current techniques. And if you have already taken the introductory course, this one will help you raise your skills to a higher stage.

The aim of this intermediate mountaineering course is that you can feel safe in the mountains. In addition, you have the opportunity to put into practice all you will learn. Therefore, I will help you climb one of the most spectacular Andean summits. The North and South Illinizas, the Sincholagua and the Rucu Pichincha are some of them.

If you want to join me on this 6-day course you must have an excellent fitness level. Please keep in mind that we will walk several hours per day. The idea of these outputs is to share other mountaineering techniques beyond the mountain itself. For example, you will understand the real meaning of going out to the mountains for more than a day and carrying the equipment on your back. Moreover, some security procedures and the organization of a plan B are many other notions you will learn on the way.

Summarizing, during this course you will learn the following concepts:

  • Rescue procedures: rescue anchors, raising and lowering systems;
  • Rock climbing skills and belay anchors;
  • Ice climbing skills on alpine ice (45 degrees or more);
  • Crampon technique;
  • Use of ice tools, screws and pickets;
  • How to build and use ice anchors for belaying;
  • Group leadership and trip planning.

Once this course finishes you will be ready to climb a mountain autonomously and safely.

Finally, let me tell you that I am planning to extend this course in many other countries of South America. Therefore, you can contact me if you are in Perú, Bolivia and Colombia!

So, contact me now for more details about next dates and group prices. It will be my pleasure to help you become a confident mountaineer!
