The route starts by following the marked trail towards Piedra Del Fraile (private land). At the point where the trail crosses the major creek flowing from the glacier on Cerro Electrico, climbers will head left off the trail following the course of the drainage until reaching cliffs. Head up the gully of least resistance that leads to the plateau above. Once you gain the obvious plateau above the steep gully, traverse the plateau by heading southwest and look for a relatively easy chute to access the base of the glacier above. Once here, the route opens up and on a clear day when the summit is visible, it should be easy to plot a route up the glacier, staying primarily climbers' left before crossing the glacier to the summit ridge. It's recommended that you stay in the snowfields between the heavily crevassed right side of the glacier and the ridge on the left. There is a final short 4th class scramble to the chossy summit.
