Description Suggest change

A huge swath of the wildest land on earth, chock full of everything from bouldering to serious alpine climbs.

Get Rolando Garibotti's book Patagonia Vertical, which is the definitive guide to the area and climbing in Patagonia. His website http://pataclimb.com/ supplements the book, but doesn't contain all the valuable information that the book has. Rolo explains weather forecasting, climbing ethics in the area and historical ascents in the Chalten Massif and surrounding area. Consider donating if you find the information useful.

Remember that all alpine excursions in in the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares requires free online registration. Register to climb here.

Getting There Suggest change

1. Fly into Buenos Aires. 2. Fly from Buenos Aires to El Calafate. 3. Take the bus from El Calafate to El Chalten.
