Description 

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.
