“Thanks Anastacia, I will never Forget this trip with you and sure it will lead to new climbing adventures. You were Amazing guide and woman. You are welcome in France. Kind regards” – Katia, September 19, 2017
“Ivan simply… “GUIDED” us. A beautiful word full of hidden meanings that are discovered while the mountain is revealing its splendor and strength. “Guiding” means knowing when to talk and be quiet. When to encourage and warn, when to look into the eyes and convey confidence. In conclusion, “guiding” is accompanying with an almost undetectable softness, with an invisible and effective confidence that made us feel safe all the time.” – Gerardo, August 2016
