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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
