Description

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

guide profile img

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 routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

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 am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

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.
