The large needle directly adjacent to the refugio Emelio Frey. Home to routes of various difficulty, the short approach makes this needle more of a crag and crowds are frequent.

I wouldn't say the approach is exactly short... 3 hour hike in, last bit pretty steep. Just sayin.

However there ARE lines at the Aguja SOMETIMES (in 2 weeks there saw 2-3 parties that had to wait).

If it's busy, El Abuelo, M2 is FANTASTIC. This is a do not miss destination, especially if you don't have enough of a rack/experience for Cochamo.

IF YOU ARE TAKING PUBLIC BUSES:
Be warned. They close sometimes, and certain lines won't run on certain days and that is NOT NECESSARILY POSTED. ASK LOCALS before you step on a bus... it might not run the next day and only they know that kind of stuff.

But hey. Yolo.

As Medic741 said the hike from the bus stop (Ski center Cerro Catedral) to the refugio Emilio Frey is about 3 to 5 hours (depending on condition and how much you are hauling.
There you can camp or stay at the mountain refuge (if there is space available).

From the base camp to the base of the climbs you got 5' to 30' to most. Up to 2 hours for the most distant one (another valley).

PUBLIC BUSES
  • ***********
Carefull with the schudules. Specially with the last bus of the day. Once the last bus was 30 minutes early and left 30 minutes early...
