Originally from Mexico City, Israel has worked as a guide throughout the mountains of Mexico, the Andes, and other ranges for more than 20 years. He has summitted el Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccíhuatl and the other major Mexican volcanoes many times. His calm demeanor, good humor, rigorous safety standards, and long experience on the peaks of Latin America make him an excellent guide. Israel also works as a mountain bike guide. He spends his free time with his son and developing new rock climbing routes throughout Mexico.
