Highlights

 
     

    The Tupungato (6570 m) also called “the stars balcony” is the highest mountain of the Andes mountain range to the south of Aconcagua. With its enormous size and outstanding conical shape, it dominates the whole landscape of this central Chilean region.

    Exceeding by many meters to all its neighboring peaks, this volcano is a serious challenge for mountaineers looking for a great experience in height. Come with me and dare to a “six thousand” technically simple summit but as physically hard as Mount Aconcagua.

    All participants must have a perfect fitness condition and an intermediate technical level. The best period to climb Tupungato is from December to March. However it is also possible to ascend it during the winter (only for expert climbers).

    About the Guide

     
     

    UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

    Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

    I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

    I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

    And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

    What People are Saying about Nicolás Gutierrez de la Fuente

     

    Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.

    The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.
