Join IFMGA certified guide Jose on a 2 day mountaineering expedition into the Cajon del Maipo in the Andes of Chile and enjoy some of the most breahtaking views you will ever see.
On this 2 day mountaineering trip, my goal is help you see the absolute best of the Cajon del Maipo. In order to do that we will do some climbing. However, the climbs won’t be very technical and no acclimatization will be necessary. As a result, this trip is open to people of various climbing levels. But you should be able to climb at a basic level and know how to properly use crampons and an ice axe.
The trip will begin with a drive from Santiago de Chile to Lo Valdes. Once there, we will take a 3-4 hour approach to the base camp of the Diente del Diablo (3,943m). For the rest of the day, and the day after we will do some exciting climbing and scrambling that will definitely prove enjoyable. The higher we go on this trip, the more of the Cajon del Maipo you will be able to see. You will be able to gaze at various streams like Coyanco, San Gabriel, Manzanito, San Jose, and many more. You will also be able to see a number of beautiful rivers as well, including the El Volcan river, the Yeso river and the Colorado river. However, the real treat will be the peaks you will get to view. Just a few examples of the glorious peaks you will get to lay eyes on include Maipo (5,264m), San Jose (5,856m) and Marmolejo (6,108m).
With amazing views, and some fun climbing, visiting the Cajon del Maipo is a great adventure. So send me a request, let me guide you, and enjoy this unforgettable 2 day experience for yourself!

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Guide from Chile
Guiding since 2001, before I started to guide clients in mountains I finished my studies as Tourism Technician (rafting & hydrospeed class 3). I like alpine climbing but also multiday hiking trips in Patagonia, some times I do logistic support for scientific expeditions and also avalanche control with Gazex, Avalancheur, Helibombing in operational areas (AIARE 2 rec).
Ice climbing in the Chilean Central Andes near Santiago is great during Jun/Sep as the rock climbing in Cajón del Maipo, plenty of 4000-5000 meters peaks are waiting to be visited, some of them with possibility of new routes, actually its possible to explore a lot and I have many proyects in differents regions of Chile!!!
