Description

The main idea of this trip is to discover the Mojon Rojo. This trip requires previous experience in mountain activities and the use of crampons, or having made an intermediate Clinic Rock.

I highly recommend this 3-day trip because it brings forward the adventurer spirit inside everyone. We go through amazing landscapes without loosing comfort.

Mojon Rojo is the first Red Mountain to the south east of Cordon del Cerro Fitz Roy. From this summit we will see the peaks of this incredible mountain range as well as those of Cerro Torre. If you want, we can also go hiking in these mythical mountains in a different trip.

Are you looking for a challenging adventure and in the heart of gorgeous landscapes of Patagonia? Then please contact me!

Itinerary

Day 1: El Chalten - Vivac

Departure from El Chalten crossing the Fitz Roy valley, passing camps Poincenot Base. Going up, we reach the north bank of the Rio Blanco to Laguna Sucia. We cross the river, runs along the middle of the lake and climb diagonally to a stream. Once there, we sail up the stream and after following the right edge of the mountains we reach the bivouac. This bivouac called “The Cave of the S” will allow us to rest under a large stone to start early the next day activity.
Altitude change: +1000 m

Day 2: Summit Vivac

After breakfast we prepare to cross the White River Glacier up trackside to get to our goal. Here rock climbing begins to take us to the summit of Cerro Mojon Rojo where we will get unparalleled views of both Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, as the various strands that make up their needles.
Altitude change: +760 m

Day 3: Vivac - El Chalten

Trekking back to Chalten. End of services.
Altitude change: -1000 m


About the guide

guide profile img

Since 1985 we have been operating the best trekking programs in southern Patagonia. We are always looking for new itineraries, unique expeditions, little known spots, and we offer the highest quality outdoor activities in the area... A good example of this are our classic Ice Field Expeditions that have been running with great success for many years.

Our mountaineering origin made us choose this pristine part of the Andes; Southern Patagonia is a place ruled by immense glaciers, rough weather, and mountains such as Mt Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre, a place not to miss.
We hope you join us in one of our programs so our guides can show you what Patagonia is about. We offer the best hotels, lodges and camping arrangements to suit everyone.
