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. 


About the 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!
