ASCENT TO INTERNATIONAL PEAK OF CERRO TRONADOR – 3554mts
(aka Highest Summit of Mount Tronador)
November through January
Advanced mountaineers/ we wil ride horses
Classic Mountaineering, glacier travel, ice/snow 40-50 degrees the top part
Cerro Tronador has three main summits to climb: The Pico Argentino (Argentinien Peak), the International summit and the Chilean peak. Most of people climbs the Argentinien peak due it accessibility.
Here we are offering the “The Ascent to main summit of Monte Tronador (3554mts)” .
This climb is not a lot harder than the first one, but takes a totally different “wild” logistic. We pack horses to access towards the “Refugio Viejo”via Chile, which is a non-man served hut, it is just an old bivy hut which gives a good flavor to the adventure. From here we will access the remote south glacier of the mountain: Glaciar Blanco, and we will climb to summit via the west and then north side of the mountain at the end of the climb.
The climb is isolated and requires good weather and good conditions to succeed. The ideal time to do it is November through December since the glacier needs good snow coverage to travel nicely.
The adventure is a lot more remote than the regular ascent to Pico Argentino, but technically is quiet similar, except for few section of short roping that our Mountain guides will sort it out.
Totally worth it if you are looking to get out of the crowds in the summer time.
Personally we love it this way!
