Eduardo gave us a great guiding and climbing experience around el Chorro which were tailored to what we wanted. He was also good at giving advice on how we could improve our technique and gave us climbs that ranged from fun to challenging. We stayed at his home which had all the amenities you need and is very comfortable. On top of all this, his driving was excellent and he would accompany us to the supermarket when we needed to get food for our trips. Highly recommend!

Eduardo was an amazing guide. I've been climbing for almost 3 years, and he taught me new techniques and knots that I had never heard of. All in all, it was a great trip.
