Description

The route starts at the Villarrica ski center and begins the mountain from the northwest. Begin by ascending under the leftmost ski lift (if the ski resort is open you can pay to ride the lift up and save ~45 minutes). At the top of the lift angle up and to the left. This will bring you into an open bowl. Ascend the bowl until you reach the concrete shell of an old ski lift terminal. From there, continue up another 2 hours to the summit.

The route is generally fairly mild, 20 degrees or so, but steepens to 35 degrees or so at the top.
