More info about Mountain Climbing in Chile:

Chile forms a curious long and narrow strip that is squeezed between the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andean mountains to the east. The country is 2,653 miles long, yet just 110 miles wide on average. Chile borders Peru and Bolivia to the north and northeast, while to the east it borders Argentina, with which it shares much of the Andes. To the south of Chile lies the Drake Passage. Its extreme length creates a deep diversity of climates and terrain, with the mountains playing a prominent role
