Approaching La Vieja

Description 

This is the nice looking spike that can be seen from the refugio just to the left of the saddle a good ways past M2. La Vieja contains about 10 routes, some of which are bolted.


Getting There 

From the refugio, hike up to the saddle and continue going up it keeping an eye out to your left. At a point when you are at roughly the same elevation as the base of the spike you'll be able to drop off the ridge/saddle and cross over to the base. It's about a 45 minute approach.

Del Frente climbs up the shaded face on the first pitch, then the sharp arete that's in the sun for P2.  You can barely make out two climbers on the summit.  Photo by Chelsea Morgan

Del Frente 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  South America : Argentina : ... : La Vieja
Two amazing long exposed pitches of sustained climbing on perfect rock to a spectacular summit pretty much sums up this climb. This was one of the better easy/moderate climbs that I've ever done. P1: Start on the left hand side of the northeast face with some easier climbing. This eventually leads to a nice crack. After about 120' traverse right (#3 camalot for protection) to another crack which leads to a bolted anchor. This is nearly a full 60m pitch.P2: Make a few tricky moves out...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
