Highlights

 
     

    If you are looking for a challenge that gives you some experience in the Patagonian mountains, this 3-day climbing trip to Cerro Solo, in El Chalten, is definitely a great option for you.

    Cerro Torre (2121 m) is an isolated peak close to the village of El Chalten, a top mountaineering and trekking destination in the province of Santa Cruz.

    From the summit of this peak of singular shape, you can have some stunning views of the Patagonian Ice Field, Viedma Glacier, Mount Torre and Fitz Roy.

    In order to get there, you have to ascend through the steep 50° slopes of its top glacier. So this is a great opportunity to improve your mountaineering skills!

    You can find the complete itinerary for this 3-day trip below. Before the expedition, we’ll meet to discuss the last details. We’ll also check that you have all the necessary equipment.

    I recommend spring and summer months (especially from October to March) for this trip.

    My partners and I are a group of IFMGA mountain guides based in El Chalten. Please get in touch with us if you want to be a part of this climbing trip to Cerro Solo. It will be a unique Patagonian experience!

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Argentina.

    I’m trekking guide since 2009, and became fully IFMGA certified in 2014.
    I’ve climbed in many destinations in the Andes in Argentina, and also in Perú, Brasil, France, Spain, Italy and Austria.

    I work together with two other colleagues and friends, Indio and Tomás, who are also IFMGA. So if I’m not available to guide you, one of them can do it.

    The three of us live in El Chalten, where we practice our profession and develop our passion for climbing and skiing. And we want to share it by opening the doors to all those who want to live their Patagonian experience in a safe and unforgettable way.

    We are also committed to mountain training. Therefore, we can give you the basic tools to move in the mountain safely and smoothly. That's why we offer courses for all levels depending on the terrain you want to train. We give lessons of rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier transit and mountain skiing.
