Type of Trip
Join me on a 4-day Rock Climbing Course in beautiful Los Arenales, Mendoza.
There are few things in the world more beautiful than mountains. They are breathtaking, and the views one has while scaling them is nothing short of incredible. However, Rock Climbing can be dangerous. There are risks. Thus the need to be taught by experts how to do it properly. Besides the treacherous nature of the mountains themselves, there is also the technical skills one must learn. I can teach you this.
The summit mountain guide company has existed since 1992, so we have 25 years experience teaching and guiding people through the rigours of rock climbing.
You don’t need any prior climbing experience for this course. And the pace will be easy enough for anybody to keep up with as well.
We will cover a lot of ground over the 4-days of this rock climbing course. We will begin with the basics of climbing, from vocabulary to the specifics of equipment. You will learn the different climbing disciplines. You will also learn about all of the different techniques I myself have used in scaling some of the biggest mountains on Earth.
Rock climbing is second to none when it comes to truly feeling alive. That feeling is not free however, because you have to learn how to climb properly and safely. So let me show you, teach you, and guide you so you can have that feeling, over and over again.
I will be waiting for your message.
I don’t just teach a Rock Climbing Course either, so if you are interested in scaling the biggest mountain in the Americas, Mount Aconcagua with me, you can also join me on this trip.

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.
