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!

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.
