For any climb that is not listed as one of our regular programs, we offer our expertise as local mountain guides for private services, and of course, our help to organize the logistic of your expedition. Please notice that we do not provide this service for Osorno, Calbuco, Puyehue, or Casa Blanca volcanoes or other itineraries that requires a contract with public or privates organizations to be able to operate commercial trips in the areas that they administered.
Prices quoted are the total price per guide per day in Chilean pesos (CLP, $). These prices are private guiding fees only. They include guiding/training services and the use of ropes and climbing protection hardware (such as ice screws, wires, slings, carabiners, etc.). It is your responsibility to provide adequate personal mountaineering equipment although this may be hired.
The maximum number of clients per guide will depend on the difficulty of the itinerary, the commitment of the route, and the technical level of the clients. Not to exceed:
1 guide per 2 clients.
Here we find climbs like the south face of Cerro Arenas, the Parinacota and Puntiagudo volcanoes, Monte San Lorenzo, or Cerro Morado.
1 guide per 4 clients.
Here we find climbs like the normal routes of Nevado Ojos del Salado, Cerro Marmolejo, Volcán San José or Cerro el Plomo, and also some volcanoes like Llaima, Lanin, Mocho Choshuenco!
A ratio of 1:6 in high mountains is possible when the clients are able to climb by themselves: they are able to lead the complete route and the way back without the direct work of the guide. For these cases the role of the mountain guide is a technical director, supervising the performance of the climbers and as a local link for the logistic of the expedition.
A ratio of 1:6 is possible when there is no need for the use of a rope in the itinerary, if a rope is needed the ratio is 1:2.
A ratio of 1:4 applies.
Like routes in Cochamo: multi-pitch rock climbing a the ratio max. of 1:2, for single pitch sport climbing up to 6 clients per guide (for example, in Metri area in the Carretera Austral).
The price of the service depends on the number of participants and the days requested. These and the date of the expedition must be confirmed with the payment of the reservation. With this, we began to work together to have the logistics and planning organized as soon as possible.
