Hailing from Stubai Valley, Austria, Mario officially joined CMRCA in 2004. With over ten years of bolting experience, Mario “The Rock Whisperer” Wild/Austrain Machine is the best in the biz. A man of many talents, when he’s not bolting routes at Crazy Horse you can find him inspecting gear, guiding clients – if necessary in german – leading student programs, or building climbing walls. He enjoys the simple, makeshift lifestyle of camping and being outdoors, especially when he’s trad climbing. The best way to Mario’s heart is through his stomach! He loves cooking and eating, so if you need a restaurant recommendation in Chiang Mai, he’s the one to ask!
