Description 

"cirque of towers and mountains" just a short bus ride north of the comfortable town of Puerta Natales. Exceptional trekking with refugio huts perfectly spaced through out the park. Wildly quick and opposite type weather changes, - go fast. The most climbed area is the three towers, south, middle and north. All approached mostly for the Japanese basecamp. which is a very long one day hike from where the bus drops you off at the trail head which has a nice refugio and camping area. approaches from basecamp are about 2 hours, often folks set up a camp more near to the routes bases.

Getting There 

Fly to Punta Arenas, bus or car to Puerta Natales, then bus or car to the park.

shot of north and central tower.(central tower is on the far right, North tower summit is the right point of the middle double peak in the photo) The Monzino route starts at the notch between the North and Central Tower. Not really viewable in this shot.

The first and second pitch out of the notch, ( see approach.), is the easy 5.10 pitch. then the rest of the pitches, about 5 to7 of them, wind around giant features, meandering there way to the summit block. On the summit block is a fun 5.9 face climb. there is something on the top that you can rap off of, I forget what it was....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Some random beta...
I think the cheapest way to get to Puerto Natales (from the states) is to fly to Buenos aires (rather than Santiago) then fly to either Rio Gallegos or El Calafate, then 5 hrs or so in the bus to Natales. About 1100USD round trip. In Natales I would recommend staying at the Kaweskar hostel. Omar (who runs the place) is super cool, loves climbers (and speaks english if your a true gringo). Paine is incomprehensibly sick.
