10 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Nov, Dec




The Cerro Almirante Nieto stands tall in the Cordillera Paine in Chilean Patagonia.

This beautiful peak is just one of several gorgeous mountains in the small, isolated range. Located in the Torres del Paine national park, over 1,900 kilometres south from Santiago, and only 280 kilometres north of Punta Arenas, the Cerro Almirante Nieto is a true wonder. And for 10 thrilling days, I would like to guide you on a mountaineering adventure to the top of this beautiful peak.

The climb will follow the classic Northeast ridge route. Throughout the ascent, and particularly from the summit, you will get to experience some truly extravagant natural views. You will get to see several of the Cordillera Paine’s greatest peaks, including the Paine towers and the Paine Grande. You will also get to see a number of beautiful lakes, rivers and even the southern ice cap.

Since this trip lasts 10 days you will get plenty of time to explore the entirety of the national park. We will be spending most of our time around Asencio and the Silence valley. And because you will have obtained a climbing permit prior to the trip starting, you will be granted access to hidden, beautiful and otherwise prohibited areas within the park’s boundaries.

To participate in this trip, you should be in good physical condition. You should also have some basic experience with crampons and an ice axe.

There are few places in the world like the Cordillera Paine. And the Cerro Almirante Nieto is one of its greatest highlights. So send me a request and enjoy 10 days exploring this hidden treasure.

Are you interested in exploring another Chilean wonder? Then join me on this week-long trekking adventure through the Dientes de Navarino.

About the guide

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!!!
