If you love mountaineering then this fantastic private 3-day climbing tour of Aguja Guillaumet is the perfect experience. You will scale one of the most beautiful peaks in all Patagonia.
Climbing Tour of Aguja Guillaumet
Day 1: El Chaltén - Piedra Negra bivouac
At the scheduled time, we will pick you up from your hotel in El Chalten. From there, we will drive in a private car to the bridge over the Eléctrico River, where our three-day adventure begins.
Once there, we will start a trek that takes us through an idyllic beech forest until we reach the Piedra Negra (Black Rock). After a brief rest, we then continue to the refuge about 2200 feet above sea level. Here, we set up the camp where we will spend the night and enjoy a well-deserved dinner.
Day 2: Piedra Negra bivouac - Aguja Guillaumet summit
We eat breakfast first thing in the morning and then, weather permitting, we will depart for Aguja Guillaumet.
We start our two and a half-hour ascent until we reach the beginning of the famous 'Amy' route that takes us to the summit of Aguja Guillaumet. This is the most exciting part of the excursion, as we will climb over steep icy rockfaces and other challenging situations. We reach the summit, at 4800 ft hight, where you will enjoy the breathtaking views across the surrounding landscapes. Then, following a short rest, we will descend back down to the camp.
Day 3: Piedra Negra bivouac – El Chaltén
On the last day of this trip, we will gather up the camping equipment and prepare to return to El Chaltén. Then we set off back through the valley of the Eléctrico River until we reach the bridge where a private car will be waiting to return to you to El Chaltén.
This route requires a high level of physical fitness, and previous experience in mountaineering, cross-country skiing, or camping on snow, is highly recommended.
If weather conditions mean that we cannot ascend to the summit of Aguja Guillaumet on the second day, an extra day to attempt the climb will be added to the itinerary. In this case, the extra day will also include breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
This tour includes two nights of accommodation in a double tent in the Piedra Negra Bivouac refuge.
This is a private tour organized for you and your partner, friends or family.
