I’d like to propose a full day trekking to Loma de las Pizarras. It’s consists in a non technical climb to enjoy one of the most wonderful views of the Patagonia: Cerro Torre and Mount Fitz Roy will beautify your eyes.

Please, find here below some extra details of this amazing full day trekking in Loma de las Pizarras, near El Chaltén in Santa Cruz. Take into account you will need a good physical shape. The total walking time of the day will be 10-12 hours. 


Our trail head will be “Laguna Torre” from El Chaltén. We start the hike early in the morning until we reach the place where the “Mother and Daughter” Lagoons (Lagunas Madre e Hija) are joined.

Once in there, we’ll start to hike up across a forest. Then, we continue gaining altitude along the Southeast Ridge of Loma de las Pizarras peak in order to finally reach the 1700-meter summit.

If the climate allows you can enjoy a perfect panoramic sight of the region! The descend can be done by the Fitz Roy Trail. It leads us to Laguna Madre (Mother Lagoon) and then, to El Chaltén. On the contrary, we can descend by the same way we ascended.

So, if you want to book your place or have some question before making up your mind, please contact me now. I await your message hoping you can join me in this Patagonian trek.

Mountain Guide

Certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide from Argentina.

I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.

I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 20 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!

What people are saying about Merlín



The guide was Valerie not Merlin. Valerie was super helpful and we had one of our best days in Patagonia! We hope that our use of Explore Share website ensured that the local guide was well compensated. Everything was well organised, the talk on the way about the trek was super interesting. The views stunning.



Teo was our guide and he was great! He was very knowledgeable about the different wildlife and plants. Without him we would have never attempted to summit or descend (which was worse - his belaying and short roping was totally awesome and we felt in good hands). The weather wasn’t the best but he definitely helped guide us on what to do with the crazy winds we got. His English was very good as well. Totally recommend this for anyone seeking a great adventure and these guys made us feel very ready with all the questions and information they gave us before the day! If you want a real adventure do this and not just Laguna de los Tres!



Great hike, exhilarating and so much beautiful scenery! Thank you Marco. Grateful for the hiking poles on the incline to the Laguna.



Teo was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the area. He was very considerate of how I was getting on. I had an amazing time!



Merlin is the top climbing guide in Chalten. Anything from simple sport climbing to hard multi pitches. I did a sport day with my brother and our girlfriends. We went to two different crags in Chalten, and climbed 10 routes, fun for the whole family. I got to lead climb and had my girlfriend belay me for the first time. Thanks Merlin and Martin! I want to return to climb Guillaumet with Merlin!
