What people are saying about this trip



Toti was great. He tailored the trip to my level and goals, was happy to chat away in English or Spanish and included lots of cool history lessons about how the rock was formed and the history of the monks in the area. He even took me to see some little less known hermit chapels in the area. Would 100% recommend.



Toti is a great climbing guide. We all had a fun climbing day although we didn't do lead climbing just top rope due to the far distance of every quickdraws. We learnt so much from Toti too.



We had a fantastic time climbing with Toti! He was very knowledgeable and told us a lot about the area and climbing there! We appreciated him picking great routes for us, and then reminding us some basics of cleaning anchors and giving us a chance to lead climb! It was a great time and we are so glad we went!



Toti is an amazing guide! His experience and expertise in climbing helped make for one of my best days of climbing! 10/10 experience!!



Everything went exactly as planned and desired! We had a great day out climbing with Toti. He showed us around the area and gave us some great climbing tips!
