Get to know Marc Vilaplana - Climbing Guide
With an absolute passion for the mountain, mountain guide Marc Vilaplana is living the dream: making this hobby the way to make a living!
Since Marc was a child, he's been in contact with nature. Hiking was part of the family traditions, thanks to which he's discovered wonderful places and learned to enjoy and respect the mountains. Among these sweet memories are the ascents around Ordesa National Park and the Catalan Pyrenees.
At the age of 18, he took his first steps into rock climbing. He dedicated a few years climbing traditional classic routes, with the Montsec range as his learning grounds. With the experience gained he then set out to new walls such as Ordesa, Puig Campana, Penyal d'Ifach, Los Mallos de Riglos, Montrebei, among others.
During a trip to Australia in 2000, he realized rock climbing was his real passion. At that point, he started spending as much time as possible climbing. His climbing trips became more intense, starting with Switzerland, where he discovered his favorite routes in the amazing limestone walls of Wendenstöcke, Rätikon, and Sanetsch.
Marc decided to become a mountain guide in 2011, training at the Catalan High Mountain Academy (ECAM) gaining the certification for Climbing Monitor. He went even further, and in the spring of 2014, he finished the training to become a Climbing Superior Sports Technician.
