Climbing

Rock climbing El Chalten  Patagonia ArgentinaNear El Chaltén town, in Patagonia, Argentina there are several natural rock climbing walls with different routes from beginner to expert climbers. It is easy and quick to get to the walls. These walls have been equipped by our guides with climbing screws and bolts so you may fully enjoy practicing or learning rock climbing. This might be also a family activity, with children from 8 years onward. We include in our tours all the required climbing gear (climbing shoes, harness, ropes, carabiners and helmet).

If you want more challenging climbing you should also try ice climbing. At our ice climbing workshops you will learn the basic knowledge to move safely in a glacier and ice climbing skills. All our ice climbing activities take place at Laguna Torre glacier. To get to the glacier we have to trek from Chalten about 2 and a half hours with a rope (tyrolean) crossing with a harness over Fitz Roy river. Upon arriving, we trek to a vertical ice wall where we practice ice climbing. For all ice climbing activities we include the ice climbing gear (ropes, crampons, harnesses, ice axes).
