We depart from El Chaltén at 9 AM. The first two hours are a gentle hike through Lenga forests, until D’Agostini camp. We rest for a while and continue until Torre Lagoon. We cross Fitz Roy river with a zipline, and go up till the base of Cerro Solo, from where we descend to Glacier Grande (known as Torre Glacier), using our crampons. We finally arrive to Niponino camp, an amazing place in a valley surrounded by the west wall of Fitz Roy and the east face of Cerro Torre.
From Niponino we go up to Polacos, Cerro Torre’s basecamp. There we get on to Torre Glacier, and after one or two hours we arrive to Cerro Torre’s base! We might even see some climbers going up or down, before going back to our camp for dinner.
We dismantle our camp, and go down following the same path we use on the way up. If weather and time allows, we might even do a short ice climbing practice. On the way down we stop for a rest and a hot drink in Prestadores camp, and continue until we arrive to El Chaltén.
- Take notice that you need to bring your own tent and that you'll have to cook your meals.
- If you want a porter for your personal stuff I can provide you one, let me know and I'll tell you the price.
AAGM trekking guide from Argentina
Since a young age I felt a powerful attraction for mountains: snow, water and heights have always been something important for my life.
I live in El Chaltén, south Patagonia, for 6 months every year, and then I travel to different spots in the Andes such as Esquel and Bariloche, where I work as Ski Patrol in ski resorts.
I’m a mountain guide since 2007, Rafting 4° and Kayak Guide since 2005, Ski Patrol since 2011, and Patrol Rescue Dogs Guide and Avalanche rescue since 2016.
