CERRO SAN LORENZO MOUNTAINEERING ASCENT
Guided Expedition to One of the Highest and Most Remote Mountains in the Patagonian Andes
Intermediate to Advanced Ski Mountaineers
Expedition Ski Mountaineering
Cerro San Lorenzo is one of the highest (3705m) and remote places of Patagonia, located approximately 300 km north of the Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy Massifs in and El Chalten. This impressive mountain is not as famous as other Patagonian areas and this is what gives it the flavor of a great adventure. This mountain chain of central Patagonia dominates one of the last explored areas in the world. Without a doubt, this offers to mountain lovers a wide range of opportunities.
Towards the west we have a dense rain forest, towards east the drier Patagonian steppe. Cerro San Lorenzo is the natural frontier that distinguishes the climates. There is an abundance of fossilized forests and paleolithic pits of the indigenous people that give testimony of the past in the forms of crafts and cave paintings.
Cerro San Lorenzo is an immense glaciated peak (the 2nd highest in Patagonia) located on the Argentine border SE of Cochrane. Remote valleys at the base of the peak make it spectacular for almost every trekker. The ascent of the peak itself is a 7 to 10 day mountaineering expedition requiring solid glacier progression and some simple ice climbing skills. It is an excellent option for ski tourers. The mountain was first climbed in 1943 by a team lead by the Italian missionary and photographer Alberto de Agostini.
