More Info
I am an AMGA certified and IFMGA licensed mountain guide who has been living in Ciales, Puerto Rico since Nov. 2016 and climbing full-time since 1987. I am available for hire for climbing in Puerto Rico and other exotic locations around the world. Will swap leads, teach clinics on every aspect of climbing, or simply make for a reliable partner for the day.

Finger Licking Good
Feb 28, 2022 · Lead / Onsight. Bees reside to the middle right of this route but generally don't bother climbers unless they are loud, as bees respond negatively to loud sound vibrations.

Acho Puñeta "Demon Boy"
Feb 28, 2021 · Lead / Redpoint. Funny how people who haven't climbed this pitch like to downrate it and lower stars. Seems to be a trend? I raised my rating just to counterbalance this nonsense.

Coqui Monster
Feb 26, 2021 · Solo. If you know how to climb chimneys this will be an easy one. Otherwise it's a great route to learn this important technique that is rare to see in the gym.

Renuncia "Resign"
Feb 26, 2019 · Lead / Onsight. This route requires a true trust of your climbing shoe rubber and friction skills. If you're not as good on your feet it will feel much harder.
