Are you looking for an awesome mountaineering trip in the Andes? Then follow me on this 3-day winter ascent to the top of Cerro Pantojo (2,024m)!

Cerro Pantojo, or Pantoja,  is an extinct basaltic stratovolcano on the border between Argentina and Chile, about 350kms from the city of Pucón. It stands immediately south of one of the most important international passes between these countries: Cardenal Samoré. In addition, it is part of two National Parks: Puyehue in Chile, and Nahuel Huapi in Argentina.

On this 3-day winter mountaineering tour, we will explore a varied terrain combining, forests, lava basins, and glacial stages. From the spire-shaped summit of Pantojo, known by the locals as “God’s Finger”, we will enjoy panoramic views of the Andes!

In order to go over some parts of the route, we’ll need to use ice climbing equipment. Therefore, please keep in mind that this trip requires a good fitness level and at least an intermediate mountaineering level.

So, would you like to climb an impressive peak in the Andes? Then what are you waiting for? Just contact me and let me guide you to the summit of Cerro Pantojo!

I also offer ski touring experiences in Chile. Check out my Ski touring in the Central Andes: Cajon del Maipo, Cerro Plomo, Portillo, Juncal Valley program!

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in Bolivia in 2016, and recently got my full IFMGA certification in April 2018. I have also AIARE level 2 training.
