More Info

Ice-climbing in Argentina is one of the most memorable experiences on offer in this part of the world, from Patagonia in the South to The Andes in the West.

Argentina is one of the most thrilling and invigorating countries on earth, with its blend of a fascinating history, an abundance of beautiful nature and a world-renowned ability to have a good time!

The ice-climbing on offer varies from day-trips suitable for beginners through to challenging, week-long expeditions that will push you to your limits.

The temperatures can drop quite dramatically in the main ice-climbing regions, so warm clothes are a must to avoid having a bad time.

Awesome three-day climb of the Aguya de Guillaumet, challenging but incredibly rewarding, especially due to the exceptional views from the top (Fitzroy seemed to be within touching distance!) Thanks for such an excellent trip Merlin, will remember it for ages!

I have been fortunate enough to visit El Chalten twice this year. The first time was with friends and we used Mountaineering Patagonia to climb Cerro Madsen. The weather was terrible, but the experience could not have been better. This winter though, I took my parents down and we signed up for Paso Del Cuadrado. We were joking today that it was the best hike we have ever been on. The guides (Martin and Max) met us the night before to check gear and go over the route. They were very good at explaining every detail. They met us the next morning with hot coffee and even better attitudes. As my mother put it, they set the perfect pace as we climbed 4000 vertical feet over 7 miles. I repeat the trip could not have been better. We made it to the pass with ease, never feeling out of control or unsafe. Bottom line: I am going to keep coming back to El Chalten and every time I will visit Merlin and his staff and go on one of their hikes. You would be foolish to not go with them.

Aguja Guillaumet con Merlin escalada montañismo en la Patagonia fue una experiencia magnífica. Merlin era flexible con las fechas y se aseguró de que tenía la ventana óptima para la excursión de tiempo de 3 días. Se ocupó de todos los detalles del viaje y estaba muy bien informado sobre la región y la ruta. Me impresionó especialmente la comida para la excursión que organizó y siempre estábamos bien alimentados. Yo recomendaría un viaje de escalada alpina con el montañismo Patagonia, sé que regresaré.
