    We will park the cars to start our hike to the Huemul Glacier oriel and the Cerro Vespignani.

    If the climate helps, from the Huemul glacier and Cerro Vespignani we have great views. Indeed, we can see the Fitz Roy, the Cerro Torre, Agujas and the Lago del Desierto (Lake of the Desert).

    About the Guide


    I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

    I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new froutes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains.

    One of my biggest achievments was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. Including this ascent, I have climbed Cerro Torre three times and Fitz Roy four times.

    I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province.

    I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

    Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering.Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.

    What People are Saying about Indio Treu


    Indio was an amazing guide! I am safe and sound on the ground now :) He was very knowledgeable about the terrain and weather patterns; he changed plans, urged me to move faster accordingly. He answered all my questions and was really patient with my slowness. As for the climb, it\'s a great intro to Alpine world. I\'m primarily a rock climber, so the ice/snow part was all new. The ice/snow part was strenuous, but doable as a completely newbie, and basically you can be pulled up or lowered if you\'re struggling. Approach was long, rocky, and windy. What a great experience. Highly recommend Indio and the climb!

    Indio is an awesome guide and all around great guy. The trip up Aguja Guillaumet is absolutely amazing, we took the Comensana-Fonrouge route cause the Amy coluoir was in bad condition. Indio found a two day window of good weather for the climb. He also spent a day climbing in town to go over \"systems\" and gauge my ability. A great trip I will never forget. Can\'t say enough good things about Indio!

    Our trip with Indio over the Ice Cap was fantastic. At the pre-departure meeting, Indio showed us several variations which helped us make decisions that allowed us to work out a way to still participate (I had an injury, therefore a low fitness level).Indio showed great patience; he adjusted the pace accordingly and his experience was evident over the course of a week. The weather was kind and allowed us outstanding views on the Glacier and from the many various high points along the way. We particularly enjoyed the rock scrambling and dodging the many crevasses! Our group was good humoured and worked well as a team; my partner and I felt we were with a group of friends, rather than a private guided trip. I\'d recommend Indio for anyone considering this type of adventure.
