More info about Ice Climbing in Chile:

Chile, that thin South American stretch between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes, is famous for its stunning wilderness. Travelers visit this unique country year round for its varied sceneries and adventure options. Because of its strong mountain culture, mountaineering, skiing and, of course, ice climbing are popular activities amongst locals and visitors alike. What makes Chile particularly good for ice climbing is the direct access to the Andes, the longest continental mountain range in the world, with its breathtaking glaciers and frozen waterfalls. The further south you go, the more ice you will find. Amongst Chile’s star climbing spots are the Villarrica Volcano and the ice-filled Sollipulli volcanic caldera. This combination of underlying fire topped by ice, characteristic of volcanic glaciers, makes both beautiful places to discover.
