Does anyone know of a guidebook that describes the routes on Fitz Roy? It doesn't necessarily have to be a guide book, it's just a mountain I'm interested in and want to learn more about the routes/history. Daniel Kuzio

Rolando Garibotti's book is the one you want.

Patagonia Vertical available through Patagonia.

"Enduring Patagonia" by Gregory Crouch is pretty awesome. Not a guide book but includes a lot of history of Fitz Roy and major climbs in Patagonia. James Wieman

Alpinist #6 mountain profile was on Fitz. Lots of historical info and photo overlays with route lines. This article was also written by Rolo and is probably the next best thing after his guidebook. Alan Kearney's book Mountaineering in Patagonia is also good for historical info but only has beta for a select few routes. Flex
