Get started in the fascinating world of mountaineering with the courses we do in Sierra de Gredos (very near to Madrid). We provide all the equipment you need. You only need to bring warm clothes and a lot of energy!
You will learn the fundamental techniques of mountaineering in a controlled high mountain environment. Later on, you will be able to perform other more complex activities with total safety.
If all of this wasn’t enough, we will gift you with a book edited by us with all the theory explained at the course that will allow you to plan your activities with complete safety in the future.
The activities we will do are:
Equipment and needed materials
Snowshoeing with crampons and ice axes
Introduction to snow-related studies
Progression through crevasses
Rappelling in snow
Technical equipment (crampons, ice axes, etc)
Specific progression equipment (harness, ropes, safety tools, etc)
2 day course
Book of the course
As well, we offer you the chance to stay over night and have dinner with the group in high mountain refuges and hostels; exactly what you need to feel all the magic of the environment.
This activity can be cancelled and fully refunded up to 24 hours after booking.
After this time, El Pingüino Aventurero has established that you have up to 2 days before the activity to cancel and get a refund.
If the activity had to be cancelled because of weather conditions, you would have a full refund.
