Description

I am happy to invite you to this 3-day summer climbing tour in Mount Tronador. With its 3554 meters it’s the highest peak in the Nahuel Huapi National Park and also in Bariloche.

One of the highlights of this adventure is that we will ascend the Mount Tronador via an off the beaten route. You will have a real feel of nature and wilderness far from the crowds.

We will approach the border between Argentina and Chile with the help of horses. Then we’ll reach a Vivac Hut near the Manso Glacier, where there is the Mount Tronador Hut.

Once we are at the hut it is quite easy to access one of its main peaks: Pico Argentino, Argentinian Peak in English.

This trekking ascent is perfect to be done during January, which is Bariloche’s high season. There are many other interesting summer programs, like this 3-day climbing tour to the Frey Hut that I also lead.

So, want to come to Mount Tronador with me? Fill out the form and contact me as soon as possible. It’ll be my pleasure to be your guide!

Itinerary

Day 1: Bariloche - Pampa Linda - Mount Tronador Hut

I will pick you up at your hostel in Bariloche. We’ll then drive to Pampa Linda and ride our horses to the Chile’s border (4 hour ride). Then, 3 hiking hours to the vivac hut on the south side of Mount Tronador. Overnight there.

 

Day 2: Pico Argentino - Otto Meiling Hut

We’ll wake up early to prepare our equipment and head to the Pico Argentino Hut (approx. 6 hours). This route will take us through a glacier terrain. Then, we must face a final ascent to the summit which is a bit technical and involves 50º ice slopes. After reaching Pico Argentino we’ll head down to the Otto Meiling Hut where we’ll spend the night.

Day 3: Pampa Linda - Bariloche

Descent to Pampa Linda and return to Bariloche. You’ll spend the night in a hostel of the city.


About the guide

UIAGM-IFMGA-IVBV Mountain Guide

My name is Jorge, and I am one of the first IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Mountain Guides in Argentina. I got my full UIAGM-IFMGA certification in 2005. I was one of the pioneer mountain guides in Argentina and Chile to introduce Ski Mountaineering and Backcountry Skiing back in 1999.

In 2009, I became one of the first Argentines to work as a Ski Guide on the Antarctic Peninsula and ski peaks in that area. I helped, co-worked and guided ski athletes from Salomon, Arcteryx, Smith and the North face, such as Xavier de Le Rue, Luca de Bari, Eric Hjorleifson and other pro-athletes of the ski industry in the production of ski films in Argentina and Chile.

I have been guiding across Patagonia for more than 15 years now. In the past few years I have also guided in Antarctica, Norway and Iceland.

Patagonia is my home. This is where I started to develop most of my guiding skills and experiences at an early age. Today, I spend half of the year guiding overseas, and the other half guiding in Argentina and Chile.

Regarding my personal resume as a guide and sportsman, some of the highlights include classic Granite climbs in Yosemite National Park like the Half Dome Regular NW face in a day and Sentinel Rock (Herbert- Chouinard route); several ski mountaineering expeditions to Alaska including the inner Chugach range; the Wrangell's-Saint Elias range, spending two weeks in a tent in the Icefield, skiing couloirs and faces as much as we could. Other great mountaineering expeditions I went on include:
- A remote expedition to Mariano Moreno in the Patagonian Icefield
- Several rock climbs in Europe, like the Dolomites, Slovakia, French and Swiss Alps, and Spain
- Guiding the Mont Blanc ascent on skis
- Technical classic ice/rock Rebuffat- Terray on Pelerins in Chamonix
- Frendo Spur in Chamonix
- Fitz Roy and other satellites spires in Patagonia

I happily spend a lot of my time on skis, and guiding mostly technical backcountry and volcanoes in Patagonia.

I’m fluent in Spanish and English.
