14-Day Itinerary

Will and Mauricio will pick you up in Bajo Caracoles in a rental car. Depending on the time of day that you arrive, we can relax and sleep at a hotel or go ahead and drive to the climbing area.

Happy new year! Epic place to ring in 2023!

We get organized, check gear and supplies, and drive up the valley to Cañadon Caracoles with camping gear, cooking equipment and food for two days. We’ll camp in a pristine remote area right next to the vertical rock walls. Chalk up for the first time in Patagonia and start climbing!

We wake up in this wild natural paradise right next to the rocks and enjoy a full day of climbing. We have an option to camp out another night or pack up early and drive to the Chilean border.

Adios Argentina, welcome to Chile! We check into Hospederia de la Patagonia in Chile Chico and prepare for a fun day of sport climbing! After climbing, we take advantage of the comforts of Chile Chico, eat a big dinner, and sleep in a nice bed.

We pack up and drive out to Parque Jeinimeni to meet the Arrieros in charge of bringing our supplies to the mountain on horseback. This allows us to hike with just a daybag (3 hours) to the amazing mountain of basalt columns, Cerro Colorado. Here, we will explore the striking features of the mountain and teach you about crack climbing, placing gear, and building anchors. The idea is to introduce new skills throughout the trip so that you gain knowledge and experience to allow us to tackle cracks multipitch climbs later on. Then we camp under the stars, far away form any city lights.

Today, we apply the skills and techniques we practiced yesterday. We will climb a variety of single pitch cracks and possibly a multi pitch, if you are feeling confident! After a day of climbing, we’ll enjoy another relaxed night under the stars.

We wake up with the sun and enjoy a chill breakfast in camp before packing up and sending the gear out with the Arrieros. We travel back to Chile Chico and enjoy hot showers and celebrate with a traditional Asado (south american bbq). You’ll be able to sleep as long as you like to rest and recover after your big adventure at Cerro Colorado. No rush in the morning!

We wake up to a peaceful morning (yoga, coffee, shower) and take a moment to reflect on how far you’ve come. Think of how amazing it is to be improving your climbing skills in such an amazing Patagonian landscape! Then we say our goodbyes to the friendly staff at the Hospederia and head off to discover new rocks at Ibañez.

Option to climb or take a full rest day. The accommodations tonight are a lovely, well-equipped campground.

We’ll wake up well rested and explore new rocks at the climbing area Maitenal. Climb as many routes as you feel like while taking opportunities to appreciate the rolling landscape and rugged cliffs! We have an opportunity to BBQ and fall asleep content under the stars.

We travel to new cliffs close to the striking Cerro Castillo mountain, which looms ever-present. We’ll explore the many well-equipped sport climbing walls during the day and relax in the evening at another beautiful campground in this cute little Patagonia mountain village.

Full day of climbing in Cerro Castillo. If you’re feeling adventurous, your guide will mix it up and show you a fun multipitch climb! In the afternoon, we can decide to stay the night again in Cerro Castillo, or leave earlier to Coyhaique for more rest in a comfortable hotel with full-sized beds and hot showers.

Let’s spoil ourselves today and go out for breakfast in Coyhaique. While we enjoy a relaxed morning, we will make a climbing plan for the day. Options include casual single pitch climbing or a full-on adventure to scale a multipitch on the impressive monolith Cerro Mackay. Whatever you feel like, count on a chill night with good food in Coyhaique.

Wow, time flies! It’s our last day on tour together, so let’s really make it count! Explore a new cliff today? Head back to Cerro Mackay for another epic multipitch? Whatever you feel like, we will do it in style and celebrate with a gourmet dinner and evening in town – ou treat to say thank you for coming!

We enjoy a leisurely breakfast and offer some free time in the morning to do any final souvenir shopping in Coyhaique before your transfer to the airport.
