Description

When it comes to mountaineering, there is a lot of skills and techniques to be learned. Those skills and techniques are necessary to ensure your climbing endeavors are as safe as they are successful. However, it is important to learn the basic fundamentals of mountaineering before progressing to more advanced and challenging aspects. As a result, I believe this 2-day mountaineering and trekking course will be of great value to any aspiring mountaineer.

The course will take place in the beautiful Argentinean capital city of Buenos Aires. The course will consist of 2 intensive classes, each one lasting 7 hours, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Throughout the course, you will learn a great deal. Some examples of what will be covered includes the following.

  • Mountain ethics

  • History of mountaineering

  • Formation of the relief and its characteristics

  • No trace preparation and training

  • Equipment and materials

  • Logistics of expeditions

  • Pre-physical preparation

  • Anatomy and physiology of the body at height

  • Acclimatization

  • Hydration and eating

  • Orientation and navigation

  • Interpretation of topographical charts

  • Meteorology

  • Risk management

  • Basic knots

  • Rescue and evacuation

While that might seem like a lot of information to take in over just 2 days, you can rest assured that the classes will be very comprehensive. And, by the end of the course, you will have a much firmer grasp on the fundamentals of mountaineering and trekking than you did prior to taking the course.

If you are in Buenos Aires and would like to learn about mountaineering, this is the course for you. To be a part of the course, all you have to do is send me a request.

EPGAMT Mountain guide from Argentina.

The mountain is my workplace and space to enjoy what I like to do ... mountaineering.

I climbedd and promoted various mountains and volcanoes such as: Aconcagua , Ojos del Salado, Pissis , Walter Penck , Incahuasi, Plata, Rincon, Vallecitos , etc.

The mountain can find oneself, to rediscover the essence and every moment. It is a natural place that transmits balance, harmony, tranquility and at the same time, tests us and motivates us to self-improvement. The mountain is accessible to all, just enough to take the first step ... we offer a different experience to share.
