It is a great honor for me to invite you to a magic place surrounded by the most emblematic summits of the Chilean central region. A one day ascent program to Cerro Union!

Cerro Union lies in the south of the Morado Lagoon. It’s a “small” mountain if we compare it with its enormous neighbors. From its summit we’ll appreciate one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Andes.

In addition, from its 3890 meters of altitude we can see the valleys of Morales and Valdés to the south and Cerro Castillo to the southeast. To the east, there will be the Marmolejo and San José peaks and to the north, an absolute panoramic view of the great Morado valley in all its splendor. It is really a “union” of the most incredible scenes of the central Chilean region.

We can climb Cerro Union both in summer and winter. The ascent is technically easy all year round but it is more physically demanding during the winter time (from June till August).

So, contact me by clicking on the green button. I’ll help you plan a custom program for you. Let’s conquer the Cerro Union summit in the safest way!

Mountain Guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

What people are saying about Nicolás



nicolas was fabulous and made the trip recommend him highly



Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.



My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!



The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.



The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.
