LANGUAGES

Spanish, English

Since childhood he has always had a close relationship with the mountains and the outdoors. Enjoying trekkings and rock climbing, to which he destined a great part of the 90’s, he ended up doing the classical mountaineering. All these activities have taken him all over Chile, America & the Antarctic, looking for new places and experiences. He has professionally dedicated himself to developing and testing outdoor activity equipment, and also participates in the main fairs around the world specialized in the outdoors.  One of his goals is to produce equipment that provides comfort and safety to the user.

Monitor of “Leave no Trace” and trained in “Wilderness First Aids”, he became part of the Spondylus team in the expedition in which the height of the volcano Ojos del Salado was measured. Lama has been with us in search of new experiences and sharing emotions.  
“When we take a new route, we don’t want this to be just a summit or another point on the map, we want this to be a spiritual experience for the people coming with us”.
