Luis 'Mac' Carlos García Ayala

Carlos started climbing at the age of twenty one with his friends/mentors Rafael Guadarrama, and Carlos Cano. These two gentlemen seeing the natural ability of Carlos to hang on remarked that his climbing was as skilled as a Macaque monkey earning himself the nickname “Mac”.

With twenty two years in the profession Mac is by far the most accomplished mountaineering, and rock guide in all of Mexico. He has worked in the United States, Spain, Peru, Pakistan, and of course Mexico. Whether it be Traditional, Sport, Big Walls, Alpine, or Mountaineering trips to Iztaccihuatl or Xinantecatl, Mac has a huge repertoire of skills to pass on to his clients. With Mac’s portfolio of accomplishments, and by reading our mission statement at SouthernXposure it is obvious why he is such a valued member of our team of professionals. Come climb with SouthernX and see for yourself why we are the premier guide service South of the Border.
