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!

About the guide

I was born in 1987, and since I was young I’ve been around the mountains, and for the past 12 years I’ve been practicing all mountain disciplines.

Some highlights of my climbing career: First Chilean to Cerro Torre via Ragni, first Torres del Paine alpine style traverse, and many other first ascents.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in Bolivia in 2016, and recently got my full IFMGA certification in April 2018. I have also AIARE level 2 training.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
