Mountain Guide

I am an aspirant guide and climbing instructor based in Campobasso, Molise, Italy. My passion for mountain activities began at a young age when I first saw what rock climbing was about during a trip to Gran Sasso. Since then, the mountains have represented a wide range of emotions for me: awe, a sense of adventure, even fear. Eventually, I felt the need to share these feelings with others and decided to pursue a career as a guide. I became an aspirant mountain guide in November 2014.
