“I learned to rock climb back home in Mexico in 1997 and loved it right away. Soon after, I started sharing my passion for rock climbing by teaching friends and other individuals. I taught for many years as a hobby until I decided to pursue my dream job and moved to Boulder, Colorado in 2009 to become a climbing instructor and mountain guide.
Over the past few years I’ve occasionally worked for other guide services and spend a lot of time as an instructor at the Boulder Rock Club. I’m excited to be a part of the Colorado Mountain School guide staff. I love to combine my passions for teaching, climbing and the outdoors with my work.”
Bernardo is certified through the American Mountain Guides Association as a Single Pitch Instructor and has completed the Rock Guide Course.
