Itinerary


Day 1

We will depart early in the morning to El Pilar (15 km). Once there, we will head up the “Río Blanco” valley, through the climbers camp, and start the steep ascent to “Laguna de los Tres” (1200m/a/s/l).
Then, we will continue with the skis up the East face of Cerro Madsen another 600m higher.
The views of Fitz Roy and Piedras Blancas Glacier are very impressive at the top! After a break and some photos, we´ll descent skiing , sometimes all the way down to the camp, then hike back to El Pilar and drive to El Chaltén.

The activity takes about 12 hours, with a total elevation gain around 1300 meters.

Note

Our Mountain Guides will have the final call to modify either partially or totally any program when safety conditions require.
