    Come climb the Aguja Poincenot with me! 

    Aguja Poincenot (3002 meters in height) is one of the emblematic sharp-pointed mountains in Patagonia, characterized by its beauty and aesthetic. In addition it is the 3rd highest peak after Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre and it is a big objective if you want to climb a serious mountain.

    It is also an exigent challenge because of its variety of surfaces on the way to the summit. Huge glaciers, snowfields and cracks in perfect granite make Poincenot unique among the great mountains of El Chaltén.

    If you want to be part of this 3-day climbing experience, send me your request and book the trip. It’ll be my pleasure to guide you on such an exciting climbing goal. Aguja Poincenot and I are waiting for you!!

    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 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.
