I am an aspirant IFMGA mountain guide, with extensive experience in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Perú and Ecuador.
I live in Cajón del Maipo, Chile, where climbing opportunities are almost endless!
I do a lot of guiding in South America´s High Mountain, especially on technical routes. I also do rock climbing courses in different parts of Chile and in my city.
During my tours, I try to generate the best experience for my clients, and like to teach them about the cultural and environmental importance of the places we visit.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
