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.

Marc est un guide génial, très agréable et très professionnel. Il est venu avec un collègue pour nous encadrer comme nous étions 8. Ils nous on fait passer un super moment tous les deux, sur cette via ferrata bien conçu, et parfois assez engagé, mais avec possibilité d'éviter les passage difficile. Marc a été au top, accueil, équipements conseil, et même photo et vidéo. Un grand merci a lui et son collègue pour ces super moment.

Marc’s via Ferrata tour was amazing, and Marc was very accommodating and patient. First off I think you really need to be adventurous and have some level of fitness. It’s strenuous but all is worth the thrill and views along the way. I totally recommend this tour. I have been looking forward to exploring other via ferrata tours as well.

Had a fantastic time with Marc. We had a small group of just two where he lead us through the Baumes Corcades Via Ferrata. He was very knowledgable, provided a safe and welcoming environment, and was flexible with scheduling. It was a great trip and a great via ferrata with a variety of routes/difficulties to choose from.
