Description

This 2-day Cerro San Gabriel south wall alpine climbing trip is a demanding adventure close to Santiago de Chile.

The Cerro San Gabriel (3128 m) is one of the most iconics peaks in the region of Cajón del Maipo. It’s located near the road, so it has an easy acces. Plus the south wall is an amazing granite rock, which makes it very famous among rock climbers.

The normal route is a nice day hike with amazing views of the Cordillera de los Andes. But we’ll take the adventurous path!

The program will start with a two hours approach hike that will leave us right under the big granite wall of the south face of the mountain. There we’ll have a 400 meters, 5+ climb to get to a bivouac terrace, where we’ll spend the night.

The next day we’ll go through a ridge to the summit, where we’ll enjoy some of the nicest scenery in the Chile’s Central Zone. Then we’ll go down through the normal route.

So if you are ready for a serious challenge in the Andes, request to book this 2-day Cerro San Gabriel south wall alpine climbing trip and let’s start planning your next amazing adventure!

About the guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.
