  • Immediately put what you learn into practice in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.


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.

About the Guide


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!

Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn\'t be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.

This trip was amazing and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in hiking. We went on 9 and 10 of December but we were lucky and the weather conditions was really good. The nature and the view were fascinating. Alejandro was an excellent guide! Very professional and a very nice guy. All these elements combining together made this trip an unforgettable experience!

That was a blast, I truly had a wonderful time! Everything went just perfectly, thanks a lot to my guide Alejandro for your professionalism, patience and flexibility. I am looking forward to my next trek in the Sierra Nevada (or elsewhere, who knows?) and will definitely think of Nevalia
