Description

Today I am happy to invite you on a rewarding single day guided alpine climb to Las Peinetas!

Also known as the Millalifen massif, Las Peinetas (The Combs in English) is a spectacular geomorphological formation of volcanic origin. It lies on the Chilean-Argentine border, east of Puesco, in the Villarrica National Park. Its complex shape combines edges, towers and tips, giving the feel of a rock castle!

Las Peinetas offers sheer walls of 400 meters long soaring over the Trancura River Valley. The ascent can be done in one long day. For those who prefer spending the night in the valley, we can return the following day.

The formation of this massif is composed of a large central rocky tower with abrupt vertical walls whose altitude exceeds 2000 meters. We can find an altitude change that varies between 400m and 500m.

Towards the northeast of the central tower there is a rocky edge of smaller height. To the south there is a set of higher rocky tips and walls which are separated from the central tower by two cliffs.

As you can imagine, Las Peinetas is a big challenge for those who are in search of a great goal near the Andes. During this trip I'll guide a small group. In case I am not available at the date of your arrival, my brother Cristobal can take my place.

So, what are you waiting for? Contact me now if you want to be part of this wonderful experience! I am sure you won't regret it.

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.
