I made my first ascent at an early age.

I have been guiding professionally for over 20 years, pass safety and rescue courses in the sister Republic of Peru with Swiss trainers, my training culminates with the French school of the ENSA (National School of Sky & Mountaineering) International certification UIAGM opt / IFMGA. Conquer the Summit of Bolivar, Humboldt and others in Venezuela, the peaks of Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador, Alpamayo and Huascaran in Peru, and also reached the summit of Aconcagua (6954 m) twice the same day from Base Camp ( Plaza de Mulas) in Argentina.

My knowledge of the Cordillera Real is very extensive, so much so that I helped the Military Geographical Institute produce their map of the Cordillera Real (the only official map of the area). I am an active member of the Bolivian Andean Club.

I was also hired by the President of Bolivia (then) – Jorge Quiroga – to climb Huayna Potosi and many delegations of embassies.
