Type of Trip
When it comes to Patagonia, there is just so much to do and see. And for such a beautiful place to have such amazing variety makes it truly remarkable.
On this week long adventure, I would like to guide you for some fantastic rock climbing at the Piedra Parada.
The Piedra Parada consists of a stunning collection of rock formations near the Chubut river. There is an abundance of different climbing spots in the area. As a result, there are a number of single-pitch routes that are perfect for beginners and multi-pitch routes that are ideal for experienced climbers. So no matter what climbing level you are at, there is some great climbing in store for you at the Piedra Parada.
Along with the great daily rock climbing, there are other great highlights to enjoy on this trip as well. For instance, the trip will begin and end at Bariloche. This famous city is full of exquisite restaurants, priceless chocolate, and exciting night life.
And after leaving Bariloche, you will be thrust into the natural wonder of Patagonia. You will get to admire the Andes. You will also get to gaze at canyons like La Buitrera. And you will get to enjoy the peace and tranquillity that comes with such a vast and enchanting place.
A perfect combination of relaxation and excitement, an escape to the Piedra Parada is an experience worth having. Whether you are camping by the fire, or scaling a large rock face, you will be immersed in the gorgeous surroundings of Patagonia. So send me a request, meet me in Bariloche, and let the adventure begin.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide
I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.
I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.
The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!
