Cerro Fitz Roy o Chalten visto desde algún sendero con rumbo al cerro del Pliegue Tumbado. (2/2016)
El nombre Chaltén proviene del aonikenk o lengua tehuelche y significa "montaña humeante", debido a las nubes que casi constantemente coronan su cima, lo que unido a la denominación ancestral ha llevado a creer erróneamente que se trataba de un volcán. La montaña es considerada sagrada para los indígenas locales y forma parte de su cosmogonía. El Dr. F. Moreno lo bautizó como Fitz Roy el 2 de marzo de 1877 en honor al capitán del HMS Beagle, Robert Fitz Roy, quien recorrió el río Santa Cruz en 1834.
En 1952 se concretó la primera la expedición francesa compuesta entre otros por Lionel Terray y Guido Magnone, quienes ascendieron por la vía sudeste.
Cerro Fitz Roy or Chalten seen from some path towards the hill of Pliegue Tumbado.
The name Chaltén comes from the Aonikenk or Tehuelche language and means "smoking mountain", due to the clouds that almost constantly crown its summit, which together with the ancestral denomination has led to mistakenly believe that it was a volcano. The mountain is considered sacred to local Indians and is part of its cosmogony. Dr. F. Moreno baptized him as Fitz Roy on March 2, 1877 in honor of HMS Beagle's captain, Robert Fitz Roy, who toured the Santa Cruz River in 1834.
In 1952, the first was the French expedition composed, among others, by Lionel Terray and Guido Magnone, who climbed the Southeast.

On the 20th of January @mihneaprundeanu and I managed to squeeze one last route just before leaving Patagonia, this time on Aguja De l'S. Our alarm was set for 1:30 and we were ready for plan A. When the alarm went off the rain and the high winds convinced us to rethink our plan and we re-set the alarm for 2:30. The same happened at 2:30, at 4:30 and when our last alarm went off at 8:00 it was already too late for plan A. So we packed for plan B and we set off to climb the first and only alpine rock climb during our trip down to Patagonia. .

Climbing was spectacular, the granite was covered with a thick layer of rime snow that was hard to trust under the pressure of the ice tools peaks and crampons. The second pitch revealed the first challenge and seriousness of the route. Finding proper protection in the snow covered cracks and a safe way up the slabs was not easy. Kyriakos had a really bold lead, climbing delicate slabs for about 45 m with just 4 pieces of pro. Quite a crazy start.
We continued with a long traverse left on ledges and snow fields and tried to move fast under the already falling rime from the packed vertical walls. A short rappel was followed by more traversing to a 35 m step of grade 3 or 4 ice climb which led us to the base of the famous ice chimney. The ice was looking good so we headed up motivated. The chimney was narrow at the beginning, then it got wider and steeper.
The grade 5 climbing was not on short vertical sections but on long, sustained cruxes. Quite hard and pumpy for my first proper ice climbing of the season. It was my block of leads and I focused to preserve energy resources and hang on the tools, place screws efficiently and still play it safe for the entire 5 pitch long chimney that seemed never ending. [...] A few rest days followed, and then another possible window of good weather. Story link in bio.

Standing next to calving giants is always a great way to put things in perspective. Here, on a dinghy in front of the Western Pia, fed off from Cordillera Darwin, in the Beagle Channel of Chilean Patagonia.

Exploring the rock climbing potential around Lago San Martin. The roped climbing leaves a lot to be desired for, loose, dirty rock, but the bouldering is world-class.
