The Cerro Vespignani with its 2.146 meters high, involves a climb of about 1.500 meters from the parking lot near the south end of Lago del Desierto. We will get there by a transfer from El Chaltén, about 38 km of distance.
From there, there is a one-hour walk to the base of the Huemul Glacier. Then you must use crampons or snowshoes and rope to continue the ascent.
I propose to reach the summit of Cerro Vespignani in a full day trip. The climb involves about 6 or 7 hours and the descent about 3 or 4 more.
On the way, you will find good snow quality. That’s why the area also offers the opportunity of skiing and snowboarding. Once in the Vespignani summit you won’t believe such amazing viewpoint of the Fitz Roy Massif and the Continental Ice Field. By the afternoon, we will go back to El Chaltén by car.
Please, contact me now if you are interested in this full day climb. Available dates from August to February! I will be waiting you message so that we can plan your next climbing adventure in Cerro Vespignani.

I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.
I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 20 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!
