Cerro Vespignani Ascent


 Full day (12 horas)
 Glacier experience required
 Elevation gain 1600 meters
 Very difficult: physically very demanding
 1 - 3 people per guide
  August to February


We will drive early in the morning from El Chaltén to Lago Del Desierto , located at 38 km (24 miles) distance.
From the parking lot we´ll approach to the base of the Huemul glacier ( about 1 h) and we´ll continue the ascent on the glacier using crampons or snowshoes towards the summit (2146 meters or 7040 feet).
It will take us about 6 to 7 hours to get to the top; but he views are worth it! After a good break, we´ll start the descent the same way back; it will take another two hours for the descent back to the car. We will drive back to El Chaltén in the afternoon.
