Description

The idea of this expedition is to discover the Mount Gorra Blanca (2907 m). This mountain is located at the border of Argentina and Chile. We will leave from El Chaltén.

Gorra Blanca is a real limit between the Southern Patagonian Ice Field and the valleys with beech woods and Mountain Rivers. In fact, it stands up as a bastion and is the most identifiable mountain north from Marconi Pass.

This Patagonian mountain is truly beautiful. In addition, the views along the way and from the summit are unbelievable!

If you are looking for a challenging trip please contact me! You will certainly be amazed by the gorgeous landscapes of Patagonia.

I also offer many other climbs in Patagonia, for example as I mentioned Marconi pass.
