Description

Would you like to join an exciting outdoor activity in the Chilean Andes? Then join me for this 5-day multi-pitch rock climbing trip in “El Monstruo”, in the Cochamó Valley!

Pared El Monstruo is one of the most amazing granite walls in the Chilean Patagonia. It is part of the Cochamó, a beautiful alpine valley near the city of Puerto Varas. With several over-900m walls and about 100 routes, this region is a popular destination among rock climbing enthusiasts.

On this 5-day trip, we will head up awesome multi-pitch routes to practice or improve your skills. One of our goals will be the “La presencia de mi padre” (Spanish for “My father’s presence). This is a stunning 1,600m-long line with 28 pitches. Although it is one of the longest routes of the area, it is an easy way to reach the top of “El Monstruo”.

Upon this huge wall, we will enjoy breathtaking views of the Andes and the Cochamó Valley with its lush forests and its deep-blue rivers and lakes.

Please note that this tour requires rock climbing experience and a good fitness level.

So, are you up for a big wall climbing tour in Chile? Then get in touch with me! Let’s discover the Cochamó Valley and the amazing rock face of “El Monstruo”!

I offer a lot of similar adventures in this same area. Take a look, for example, at my 3-day Rock climbing in Cochamó Valley’s “Anfiteatro”.

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I was born in 1987, and since I was young I’ve been around the mountains, and for the past 12 years I’ve been practicing all mountain disciplines.

Some highlights of my climbing career: First Chilean to Cerro Torre via Ragni, first Torres del Paine alpine style traverse, and many other first ascents.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in Bolivia in 2016, and recently got my full IFMGA certification in April 2018. I have also AIARE level 2 training.

Come and discover the mountains of Chile, a wonderful country, where we will have a unique experience together with a professional guide, in a truly unforgettable trip, it will be a pleasure to be able to guide you through some of the mountains of my country in your next vacations, i am sure will be the first of many adventures that we will enjoy together in the mountains of the Andes.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
