DescriptionReferred to as a "mini Trango Tower" by an imaginative Brazilian crew in 2004, the Campanille Esloveno is a beautiful and imposing tower of clean, golden granite perched on the south rim of Frey's southern-most cirque. The summit is a slender fin of rock that will fit 2/3 people tops, and offers stunning 360 views of the Tronador Volcano, the glaciated lakes of greater Bariloche, and the arc of the Patagonian Andes bending south. A position and a view you won't soon forget.
Rock quality is at the Holy Shit level. The classic position and the dynamite quality of the routes make the Campanille a popular destination - an early start is the ticket.
The Campanille is home to some of the finer climbs in the area, including the classics Buch-Goin and Imagínate.
Getting ThereFrom Laguna Tomcek, pass up and through the col separating the two cirques; follow a trail trending S-SW from the bench as it ascends through vegetation into the scree and slowly winds its way toward and then below the obvious Cohete Lunar formation.
Switchback right, passing some 3rd/4th class, and keep your eyes on the "mini-Trango" looking spire high above you and south of the Torre Principal. It will loom over you as you pass through amazing boulder fields (huge potential for problems) and finally up the final scree slopes to the base. 1.5-3 hrs, start early to beat the crowds.
