I'll also be in El Chalten from the 18th of January until the 7th of February. Looking for people to climb with. I'm a fairly experienced rock climber (lead up to E1) but inexperienced at ice/alpine (couple of season in Scotland). I'm doing a 5 day introductory course to snow and ice and alpine mountaineering at the beginning of January, so shouldn't be completely clueless!I'll have a rack and rope with me including some ice stuff. Give me a shout if your interested. +447522159334 email@example.com Cheers martin
I'm still nailing down my exact plans, but I'm going to be moving through Patagonia in Jan and Feb, and hoping to do as much climbing as possible. I've been climbing a bunch in Europe recently, and excited to get back to some trad, though I need a bit of practice.
I'm curious, where are you doing your course? I've been wanting to do something similar.
