The Chilean Andes offers stunning spots for climbing adventures. This 5-day trip is your chance to explore the Torres del Paine National Park and climb its Central Tower. Join me for an unforgettable high-altitude experience!

The Torres del Paine are three impressive granite peaks that belong to the Paine Massif. This mountain range in an eastern spur of the Andes is located within the Torres del Paine National Park, 112km north of Puerto Natales, and 312km north of Punta Arenas.

On this 5 day trip, we will ascend the Central Tower (2,460m) via the Bonington – Whillans route. Opened in 1963 by Chris Bonington and Don Whillans, it is a multi-pitch line with a grade VI level of difficulty (sustained). On this vertical wall, you will experience one of the most challenging climbs in Patagonia!

In addition, we will spend 5 days in this scenic National Park in the heart of the Chilean Patagonia. Elected as the fifth most beautiful region in the world by National Geographic, and the Eighth Wonder of the World by TripAdvisor, it is one of the most popular destinations in Chile.

Please keep in mind that this program is suitable for advanced rock climbers with an excellent fitness level.

So, if you would like to explore a unique National Park and climb a huge rock with an expert, just contact me. Let me take you to the Central Tower of the Torres del Paine National Park!

I also offer a shorter ascent to the North Tower. Check it out here.
