Description

Colmillo del Diablo Volcano (Devil’s Fang in English) is a stratovolcano inside the Villarrica National Park. Together with its neighboring Mount Peinetas, they guard the Trancura River Valley, forming a beautiful landscape. Thanks to its volcanic formation with alpine terrain, Colmillo del Diablo is a classic ascent with an incredible view from its summit.

Also known as the Quinquilil Volcano, the origin of its name probably comes from the Mapuche language. Quinque is the name of a native plant and lil means rock. So its meaning would be “rock with quinques”. As for the name Colmillo del Diablo, it is due to the pointed form of its summit which looks like a fang.

The classic route to access this peak is through the Puesco Alto. The ascent implies surpassing abrupt slopes along with ice climbing sections and mixed terrain. It is always recommended to ascent Colmillo del Diablo in winter to avoid unstable volcanic rests.

Depending on the group conditions we can do it in just one day. On the contrary we will spend the night in the valley and return the following day.

So why don’t you come with me and enjoy the wild beauty of Chile? I guide small groups in order to offer a custom trip. If I am not available at the time of your arrival, my brother Juan will lead this ascent.

Please fill out the form and get in touch with me. Let’s conquer the Quinquilil Volcano together!!

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I was born in 1990, and I always been surrounded by mountains, with family and friends in the Andes.

I did the first Chilean ascent to Cerro Torre via Ferrari route, four ascents to Mt, Fitz Roy, more than 12 to Torres del Paine and the first alpine traverse of the three towers.

I also climbed in the Himalayas, Yosemite, and other Andean countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in 2017 in Bolivia, and completed the AIARE level 2 avalanche training.

I work together with my brother Juan (we are the Señoret Brothers). Contact me if you want to discover the most beautiful mountain spots in Chile!
