Description

If you are looking for an awesome winter adventure in the Andes, this trip is for you: reach the summit of Las Peinetas on a 2-day guided climb!

Las Peinetas (Spanish for “The Combs”) is an impressive granite massif located 70km from Pucon, within the Villarrica National Park. Also known as the Millalifen massif, it is part of the Andes and stands near the border with Argentina. During the winter, its edges and towers get covered with ice and snow, offering a unique opportunity for an amazing alpine ascent.

On this mountaineering adventure, we will cross a varied terrain (forests, rocks, ice and snow) before reaching the top of Las Peinetas. At the end, we will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Trancura River Valley and of both the Chilean and Argentine sides of the Andes. Furthermore, we will spend a night in this stunning spot, and may have the privilege of seeing a condor fly over the area!

Please note that this ascent is only recommended for people with a good fitness level and previous winter mountaineering experience. You should be able to successfully overcome some ice climbing sections. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way. Additionally, keep in mind that in case I am not available at the date of your arrival, my brother Cristobal will take my place.

So, if you are up for an unforgettable 2-day mountaineering adventure in the Chilean Andes, please get in touch with me. I’ll be glad to guide you to the top of Las Peinetas!

Mountain Guide

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!

Great guide. Picked a well-rounded spot for a new group, with numerous options. Understanding of our lack of time at altitude. Great guy.

Excellent day at Portillo with Cristobal. He gave us several options in a planning session the night before. He also communicated well on the day of about current conditions and what we were seeing. We ended up doing a secondary objective due to what we saw in the field.
