We will leave from Cervinia towards the Orionde Hut, where we will leave the car and begin our approach trekking. A not very difficult climb will take us to the Carrel refuge where we will spend the night. It will be a 5-hour hiking day.
Early in the morning we will begin a demanding ascent to the summit. We will cross the Lione Ridge that is equipped with ropes that facilitate our climb. If we are lucky and the weather conditions help we will reach the summit and after enjoying its magical views we will go down the Hornli Crest, on the Swiss side. The round trip takes around 12 hours.
I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.
I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new froutes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains.
One of my biggest achievments was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. Including this ascent, I have climbed Cerro Torre three times and Fitz Roy four times.
I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province.
I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.
Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering.Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.
