Description

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.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I was born in 1990, and I always been surrounded by mountains, with family and friends in the Andes.

I did the first Chilean ascent to Cerro Torre via Ferrari route, four ascents to Mt, Fitz Roy, more than 12 to Torres del Paine and the first alpine traverse of the three towers.

I also climbed in the Himalayas, Yosemite, and other Andean countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in 2017 in Bolivia, and completed the AIARE level 2 avalanche training.

I work together with my brother Juan (we are the Señoret Brothers). Contact me if you want to discover the most beautiful mountain spots in Chile!

Everything was great- we lucked out and had good snow!

Cristobel was a very knowledgeable guide and he provided a good level of encouragement to push me through hard sections of climbing rather than letting me give up. Unfortunately, my original guide for two days of climbing was unable to make it and so I was rebooked for 1 day of climbing with Cristobel. What was upsetting about this was that it was more expensive to complete 1 day of climbing compared to the two days I was originally booked in for. I ended up having to pay more money for half the climbing. I think Explore-Share could improve by having a more consistent price structure for the guides, or at least being clear about why one guide is more expensive.

Great guide. Picked a well-rounded spot for a new group, with numerous options. Understanding of our lack of time at altitude. Great guy.

Excellent day at Portillo with Cristobal. He gave us several options in a planning session the night before. He also communicated well on the day of about current conditions and what we were seeing. We ended up doing a secondary objective due to what we saw in the field.
