Simeon is not only a tremendously knowledgeable and experienced guide (both on the rock and for tourism in general), he is one of the most kind-hearted people I've had the pleasure of meeting. He is a genuine, down-to-earth gentleman who goes out of his way to make you feel safe and welcomed.

Stephanie and I recently spent 4 days climbing with Sim in central Mexico around the state of Queretaro climbing in Aculco. Not only was the climbing absolutely first-class, he went out of his way to ensure that safety was more important than anything else.

As a new climber, I definitely want to make sure I'm safe since this was only my second time climbing outdoors. Sim is able to cultivate a mindset where you respect the rope but feel secure enough that you can focus on the climbing.

Sim is a curated guide, and world class, and it is an experience that I'll never forget. I can't wait for the next blue collar brawl with the cracks in Aculco the next time we go!
