I had the experience to climb Pico Duarte with Luis Franco and team. It was a formidable experience. Luis is very knowledgable in planning and preparing for such trips and provides amenities such as comfortable mattresses, good quality sleeping bags, excellent food, portable showers, snacks and water readily available at all times, nice staff, sufficient mules and a doctor. This physically challenging adventure was made possible and enjoyable for me thanks to this wonderful team. I highly recommend them!
