    Guide: Aconcagua

    Agustin began rock climbing at 20 as a hobby, and later turned it into a profession by earning his mountain guide certification. He’s undertaken climbs and expeditions in Aconcagua and its neighboring valleys, including Matienzo, Tupungato, and Vallecitos, with peaks exceeding 5000m and 6000m. Agustin has also completed technical climbs in Patagonia and global destinations such as Alaska, Canada, Europe, and Nepal. Notable accomplishments include bigwall climbing in Yosemite (USA) and winter climbs in Siberia. Agustin resides year-round in a small mountain town in southern Mendoza, dedicating summers to Aconcagua-related work, having guiding the Stone Sentinel 20+ times. Throughout the year, he engages in ice and alpine climbing, pack rafting, and exploring remote areas untouched by human presence.
