Come with Eduardo, IFMGA-certified guide, on this exciting one day or more trad climbing course near the beautiful Chilean town of Pucón!
Due to its spectacular natural surroundings like volcanoes, lakes and waterfalls, Pucón is a major centre of adventure in Chile. Located in the province of Cautín, in the Araucanía Region, this charming town will be the perfect setting to take your climbing skills to the next level!
This program is ideal for those who already know the basics of rock climbing and want to tackle challenging multi-pitch routes. According to your wishes we may leave for 1 to 3 days.
During this trad climbing course in Pucón, we will focus on trad climbing techniques, as well as on how to use the equipment properly to climb multi-pitch routes.
These are some of the main points we’ll cover :
Different types of rock and how to adapt the technique according to them.

Techniques for crack climbing (Dulfer and jamming).
Double rope climbing.
Progression in multi-pitch climbing routes.
Rappel. Use of safety back-up systems.

It would be my honor to be your guide during this exciting trad climbing course. So if you are ready to experience a unique Patagonian adventure, contact me now and book your place!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
