The Patagonia Climbing Tour
Bariloche is our meeting point where we take advantage of the fantastic granite spires of Frey and the glaciers of Tronador. This spots are great objectives with many options to train and warm up before heading south, combining every mountain skill.
Once the good weather window shows up in the Chalten area, we drive south, with a stop at Piedra Parada, where we get our fingers strong and enjoy the best sport crag in South America.
After driving the wild 40 route we get to the town of Chalten, where we focus on the summit of one of the main peaks of the range, Guillaumet, L´S or Poincenot, according to the climber´s level as well as weather and route´s conditions.
Being the first objective of this custom trip to get as much climbing as possible in great spots and with good weather, we might readjust the schedule, having the Cochamo granite walls and Arenales spires as backup destinations.
Start training now, sharpen your crampons and get motivated for the ultimate climbing trip in Patagonia.

“This past december I had the opportunity to take a solo and rather last-minute trip down to Patagonia. I decided to use the time to focus on climbing and, after speaking with several guiding companies, settled on Andes Mountain Guides. I couldn’t be happier with my decision, and feel lucky to have found these guys.
As it happened, the weather cooperated perfectly. I spent a week with Fede in the north, sport climbing for several days in La Buitrera and then tackling several of the spires at Frey. By the end of the week the weather down south was starting to look promising, so Juampi and I drove down together and during our stay in El Chalten managed to summit Guillaumet on Fitz Roy range twice by two different routes. All in all it was an incredible trip and I learned a ton from Fede and Juampi. They were both great climbers, thoughtful communicators, and great guys to boot. Hope I get the chance to climb with them in the future!”
