AEGM-UIMLA Guide from Spain
I did my first steps as a mountaineer as a teenager in Madrid. But the desire to enjoy all the possibilities given by the mountains convinced me to move to Benasque valley, at the heart of the Pyrenees.
Along the years I did several winter and summer activities not only in the Pyrenees, but also in Picos de Europa, Sierra Nevada, Sistema Central...
One of my passions is to travel and discover new places and cultures, so I did climbing trips to other European countries, USA, Canada, Morocco, India, Nepal, Kirguistán... This trips gave me a priceless experience that made me grow as a climber, and set the stone to my formation as professional mountain guide.
I now live in Cantabria, and usually guide both in summer and winter in the Cantabrian range.
What a fantastic experience - the booking process, answering out questions and the expertise and good company of guide made this, our first ascent to the top of a mountain a wonderfully enjoyable trip. Thank you.
