Description

When it comes to mountaineering, one of the biggest obstacles is navigating challenging terrain. It is an issue that every mountaineer encounters. It is also an issue that becomes increasingly problematic the more challenging the area you choose to climb. As a result, it is crucial to learn the skills and techniques necessary to navigate through that kind of terrain. That is why I am offering this full day course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Spain that focuses specifically on navigating through challenging terrain.

The area where you will be learning and practicing is located near Lugros, in the Spanish province of Granada.

Throughout this course you will learn how to safely make your way through steep terrain, ridges, rocks, detours and more. You will also learn about equipment usage, gestural techniques of basic climbing, how to secure a rope, how to tie basic knots, how to evaluate various types of terrain and more.

Participants on this course should be in good physical condition.

While this course only lasts a single day, I have no doubt you will learn many valuable lessons that will not only serve you well in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, but in other mountain ranges you may choose to explore and climb in the future. To join me on this course just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also offer a sport climbing course in the Sierra Nevada that you can take here.

There are several comfortable accommodation options in Lugros that we would be happy to recommend to you.

UIMLA Mountain Leader | AEGM Tour guide Mountain / Mountain Leader Sports Technician

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.

Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...

Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.

I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!
