Description

If you have some experience in mountaineering and are looking for a challenge, you can’t miss this opportunity. Join me on this winter alpinism program in the San Carlos Peak in Cantabria.

At 2,392 meters above sea level, San Carlos Peak belongs to the Central Massif of the Picos de Europa, in the Cantabrian Mountains. This mountain offers several options with different levels of difficulty to enjoy winter alpinism. The classic route is through the north face of the mountain. While we enjoy the activity, we’ll have the pleasure to see the stunning surrounding peaks from the massif.

The ascent through the north face isn’t technically difficult. However, consider that it has an extension of 300 meters and that we’ll find obstacles along the way. Therefore, it is important to have some background experience in mountaineering as well as a good fitness level.  Also, if you’re looking for a more demanding option, I can take you to the Ataraxia route, aimed at advanced climbers.

So, does this program sound tempting? Then do not hesitate to send the request to book your place. You won’t regret your choice!

Another option could be this snowshoeing program that I lead in Abiada, also in Cantabria. Check it out!

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.

My guide, Fran, was top-notch. Super friendly and really knew his stuff. He was fantastic at tailoring our climb based on my expectations and what I could handle and - he nailed it. Also, he communicated in English really well. On the second day we chatted away like old friends. I had an awesome time and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a personalised climbing experience.
