    We are passionate about Patagonia and all the outdoor activities this region offers. Therefore, we have the honor to invite you to two great rock climbing courses.

    As we thought in all kind of climbers, we decided to open 2 different learning trips. The LEVEL 1 COURSE is for beginners and novices who are giving their first steps. The other one, the LEVEL 2 ROCK CLIMBING COURSE is a bit difficult. In fact, it is ideal for those with some previous background and expertise in this activity.

    In addition, we want to form and build a solid foundation in terms of safety skills in rock climbing. During these courses you will become a climber with criterion, fluency and autonomy in the different centers of sport climbing.

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Argentina.

    I’m trekking guide since 2009, and became fully IFMGA certified in 2014.
    I’ve climbed in many destinations in the Andes in Argentina, and also in Perú, Brasil, France, Spain, Italy and Austria.

    I work together with two other colleagues and friends, Indio and Tomás, who are also IFMGA. So if I’m not available to guide you, one of them can do it.

    The three of us live in El Chalten, where we practice our profession and develop our passion for climbing and skiing. And we want to share it by opening the doors to all those who want to live their Patagonian experience in a safe and unforgettable way.

    We are also committed to mountain training. Therefore, we can give you the basic tools to move in the mountain safely and smoothly. That's why we offer courses for all levels depending on the terrain you want to train. We give lessons of rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier transit and mountain skiing.
