This town is the entry point to get back to Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, etc. The town is surrounded by rhyolite cliffs with oodles of sport climbs. Climbing sport routes so close to Fitz Roy makes you feel a little like you're dating the prom queen's ugly sister but at least you're going to the dance. Many of the climbs only have one bolt to rappel.

Getting There 

Typically travelers land in El Calafate and take a bus to El Chalten.

Description:5 pitches to the top(possible walk off?).Can be confusing many alternate bolted routes, many chopped bolts.Fun route, great views, decent belay stances.The first three pitches offers some easier climbing (5.7) and then things heat up for the last pitch. There are at least two variations to the last pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
