Mi novia y yo pasamos un día con Merlín en el Cerro Madsen. Ella es nueva en el alpinismo y
él le dio la confianza para lograr algo único y emocionante. Estuvimos en el momento de la caminata completa y terminamos queriendo volver para algo más desafiante la próxima vez. Verdaderamente una experiencia de primer nivel. Volveremos para esquiar en breve.
It was a true life experience. I enjoy every moment of it. Our guides were excellent and inka
facilities for this journey were up to par with what I expected.
Ascensione di un giorno al Cerro Madsen, giornata perfetta. Partenza ore 4 sorseggiando del buon mate, ascensione perfetta con una
giornata di pieno sole ed arrivati in vetta il Fitz Roy che si è mostrato del tutto nella sua bellezza! ottima esperienza, professionalità e simpatia con Merlin, giornata conclusa davanti a una buona pizza e una birra fresca in paese! consigliatissimo!
He hecho varias escalas de nieve en los Estados Unidos, pero no tengo mucha experiencia. Cuando venía a El Chaltén
a caminar para ver a Fitz Roy, noté que había algunos picos menos técnicos que uno podía alcanzar, y vi que Merlín había recibido críticas muy favorables. Me gustaría agregar a todo eso y decir que ninguna de estas críticas es exagerada: realmente está obteniendo una de las mejores guías. Claramente, no solo es un excelente montañero, sino que también tiene un gran conocimiento sobre la zona, su flora y fauna, y ha estado guiando en Chalten desde 2001. Además de eso, es amigable, paciente y un gran motivador. Realmente aprecié sus consejos para mejorar mi técnica de crampones, y la seguridad siempre fue una prioridad número uno. En la mañana tuvimos nieve en el camino, pero Merlín se mantuvo optimista y marcó un gran ritmo en la pendiente. Nubes despejadas en la cumbre para vistas fenomenales del glaciar Piedras Blancas, el macizo Fitz Roy y el valle abajo. Realmente divertido ascenso de crampones con unos cuantos movimientos de rock de 4ta clase en crampones cerca de la cima, y ​​una divertida carrera alrededor del bloque de la cumbre para ver el glaciar. Definitivamente me empujó un poco fuera de mi zona de confort, pero siempre me sentí segura. Éramos los únicos en la montaña ese día, y tan cerca de la caminata de la Laguna de los Tres que está repleta de otras personas, nos sentimos como las únicas personas en el paisaje prístino. Esto fue fácilmente el punto culminante de unas increíbles 2 semanas en la Patagonia chilena y argentina (incluido el W trek, Glaciar Perito Moreno). En serio, no podría recomendarlo lo suficiente a cualquiera que visite el área de Chalten, ¡incluso si eres un novato como yo! Si tiene más experiencia o va a esquiar, estoy seguro de que el viaje sería aún más épico. Él te llevará a una aventura que nunca olvidarás. Lo encontré y este viaje a través de explorar – compartir. com
Booking with explore-share was so easy, Lupe was fantastic and despite it being so close to my trip date, very
helpful and extremely responsive. Merlin was the perfect guide: knowledgeable, competent, patient, motivating and upbeat. We had snow on the ascent of Madsen but the clouds cleared for really excellent views of Piedras Blancas glacier, the valley below, and Fitz Roy. Thanks for the highlight of an incredible two weeks in Patagonia!
I’m writing this short review as I’m often asked by climbing friends who shall I climb with on Aconcagua? Let me
tell you !hand on my heart INKA is the best on the mountain.! I have climbed across the globe Alaska, Andes, Himalaya and in the Karakoram in Pakistan. I have have utilised INKA on two occasions and I believe they have the best knowledge and logistics on the mountain. Their staff care about YOU.. as you are their number one priority. They will ensure your time on the mountain is safe and you return safe even if you don’t reach the summit. So many times I have watched operators in other countries guiding clients to the summit when they should have been turned around, this has been with drastic results. That is why I always use professional companies and word of mouth . Trust me INKA are the best. Aconcagua is a tough challenge high altitudes coupled by sometimes extreme cold , require you to be fit mentally and physically. I have in the past fell to AMS and had to turn around near a summit, that is the smart thing to do.! Better to go home and re plan , the mountain will always be there. I’ve lost friends on mountains and speak from experience. INKA guides are registered and highly experienced, they will watch you carefully and monitor your oxygen levels and general well being throughout your climb. There is an excellent set up at Plaza de Mulas where if you need a rest day you will be cared for. Many of my friends have used INKA and I will continue to recommend them for their expertise I’m writing this short review as I’m often asked by climbing friends who shall I climb with on Aconcagua?

the infrastructure supporting the expedition is perfect and the team very professional. Really Aconcagua Specialists!!
Ricardo Santucci for Climbing Mount Aconcagua, 18 days
The guide was not Sebastian Tetilla but Javier Guiterez and Matias Hidalgo Nicosia
Jens Hauge Andersen for Climbing Mount Aconcagua, 18 days
They totally rock! They made everything to be perfect. Best in town if you are thinking about Aconcagua. Professionals, they
are passionate about what they do. Long story short: contact them and let the game begin!
Alejandra Bazzi for Climbing Mount Aconcagua, 18 days
Gaston Oyarzun is obviously an excellent climber/mountaineer, but he lacks a great deal of organization/logistics. This applies to all aspects
of the expedition, from food to itinerary.
Nicholas Francoeur for Expedition to Mount Aconcagua, 6962 m
Just one thing; Ivan don’t understand my need in base camp when I ask for a single tent at this
place. I think with a single tent that was more easy for me to sleep. But In generally Ivan and Juan Pedro are good boys. It’s diificult for me to rate Guide and Trip. I didn’t finished. I can rate only for the half trip.
Great and lovely people !! Everything was very professional. We had a great time in our treeking. We hope see you
soon. Special tks to Fer Palacio and Ariel. Abraços do Brasil!!
Extremely happy with the whole experience. These guys will go an extra mile to help your dreams come true. You
can book it with full confidence!
I enjoyed the previous rock climbing trip so much! We had a fantastic time climbing, it has been an awesome
time in Patagonia.
Merlin and his team worked with us to customize our trip to ensure we had an amazing time during our
week in El Chalten. We completed a fantastic trek and climbed Cerro Madsen. The changeable weather in Patagonia means that you need to be flexible and Merlin’s suggestions and his willingness to tailor his services to suit the conditions really enhanced our experience. The friendly, experienced and knowledgeable guides ensured we always felt safe and secure even when operating outside our comfort zone!
Subimos al mojón Rojo con Merlin y no puedo decir suficientes cosas buenas. Fue una experiencia excepcional. Merlin es un
excelente guía (ES certificado) con mucha paciencia, liderazgo, y atención a la seguridad. Por no mencionar, que es muy buena! Incluso nos servía café caliente en la cama (bueno, bivy sacos) cuando nos despertamos a las 4:00 am comienzo alpino. Merlin hizo un gran trabajo de elegir el derecho subir para nuestra capacidad. Era difícil y gratificante. Él claramente delineado expectativas antes empezamos, así que no sabíamos qué esperar. La subida en sí estaba fuera de este mundo – algunos de los paisajes más increíbles que he visto. Recomiendo encarecidamente una subida de Mojón Rojo durante su visita a El Chaltén!
We came to El Chalten late season (mid to late May) and wandered into Merlin’s office hoping to find an
open climbing guide. We discussed options with him given the upcoming weather and our abilities and ended up doing a day of sport climbing and a day of mountaineering on Cerro Madsen. Through both adventures he was knowledgeable, friendly, and safe. He encouraged us through the entire climb and even brought some treats for the top. I would highly recommend Mountaineering Patagonia if you are in search of a guide.
