History


Climbing South America
was born of Jeff Sandifort’s passion for climbing and adventure. Jeff arrived in South America almost 20 years ago as a backpacker and fell in love with the wild places of this exotic continent and especially the vast Andes mountain range. Later having left South America to climb peaks all over the world, Jeff couldn’t resist the temptation to return. Initially settling in Sorata, a town and base camp for expeditions in the north of Bolivia, he worked as a guide for some years both in Bolivia and neighbouring countries. Jeff quickly saw the potential for an agency that offered unique climbing expeditions and other off the beaten track adventures . Using his contacts in the industry Jeff has assembled a team of highly skilled and professional individuals, some of whom are internationally certified mountain guides. Drawing on his team’s and his own in depth knowledge of the continent, Climbing South America has developed a range of once in a lifetime climbs, treks, 4x4 tours and much more throughout South America. Currently covering 6 countries we aim to expand even further over the coming years.
