  • Spend a full day or half day rock climbing in El Chaltén.

  • Learn about knot techniques, belaying and rappelling.

  • Try single or multi-pitch routes in the company of a guide.


The village of El Chaltén has several rock climbing areas to fully enjoy a great sports day. That’s why I have planned a guided climbing day in this amazing region.

First, during the morning I will teach you some knot techniques as well as belaying and rappelling skills. Moreover, you’ll be able to put into practice all that newly acquired knowledge, on some single-pitch routes. Then, if the weather is good you can try some multi-pitch climbing. This kind of activity requires a harder technical involvement but, under my supervision, you can do it safely.

This program will take about 6 to 8 hours in total. However, I can also offer you this rock climbing program in a half-day modality. So, if you don’t have too much time, you may prefer this option! The dynamic of the activity is the same with the only difference that it will take around 4 hours. Besides that, it can be done either in the morning or in the afternoon. You choose!

Whatever the option you like, remember to bring comfortable clothes and shoes, a hut and something to drink. If you choose the full-day option you must add some snacks or a boxed-lunch.

As a certified UIAGM-IFMGA mountain guide from El Chaltén, I would be more than happy to guide you on this rock climbing day. All you have to do is book your place or send me a message by filling the contact form. 

In this area, I also lead a ski touring program and a Base Camps Trek. Check them out!




About the guide

Certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.

I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 20 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!
