Description

Throughout Patagonia in the Andes of Argentina, there are a number of amazing places to visit. And on this week long adventure I would like to guide you through one of those amazing places: the Aguja Guillaumet.

The Aguja Guillaumet (2,580), is a sensational peak that rises high amidst the Patagonian landscape. It is also an intimidating peak as well. The rocks are jagged, the ice is frigid and the walls are steep. As a result, this trip is reserved for climbers with previous alpine experience.

Our expedition will begin when you land at the airport at El Calafate. Famed for its glorious glacier, the landscape surrounding Calafate is amazing, and you will get to see a lot of it as we take a three hour drive to Chalten, where we will be staying in a hotel for the night. At Chalten, we will venture to nearby crags and spend the second day practising for the climb to come. Following Chalten, we will go to the Rio Electrico bridge and hike to the Piedra Negra camp where we will spend the night. On the fourth day of the trip, we will climb the Aguja Guillaumet. The climb will be tough, and will take approximately 15 hours round trip. After a much needed rest at camp, we will return to Chalten, spend the night, and transfer to El Calafate.

As you can see, this trip gives you the opportunity to enjoy much more than just the sensation climb of Aguja Guillaumet. As a result, you will get to enjoy a memorable experience full of great sights, stunning treks and an absolutely incredible climb. So send me a request and let’s explore a great part of Patagonia.

About the guide

guide profile img

I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.

I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.

The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!
