While the contributions are very much appreciated, there's no hierarchy, if Patagonia is the parent there needs to be children before the routes are posted - ideally it should be as follows:

Patagonia > Massif > Peak > Route. Feb 10, 2012

Before heading to El Chalten, bring lots of cash or a debit card with the "chip" (whatever the "chip is).. only 1 ATM which requires a chipped card, and no bank in El Chalten as of 12/27/14. Jan 2, 2015

Late 2015, Argentina floated their peso. There's no longer a large gap between exchange rates at a bank and the "blue-market" rate on the street. However, bringing cash is still handy. The bank in El Chalten only lets you withdraw about US$90 at a time, with a $6 fee per transaction. Feb 19, 2016
