Mountaineering camp in El Chaltén, Patagonia

    This camp is for six RMS climbers to tackle the rock and alpine climbs of the Chaltén Massif in Patagonia, during the Southern hemisphere Summer.

 The weather in Patagonia is notoriously bad. For this reason, the camp will last four weeks.  Participants will have the option to spend the entire month in El Chaltén, or two weeks at the beginning, or two weeks at the end. There are granite crags close to El Chaltén and easier peaks that can be climbed during poor weather, as well as lots of hiking and backpacking. 

    The camp will be based in a rented house in El Chaltén.

    The price is for accommodation only. Four weeks will be $1,500 and two weeks $800.

Participants will have to get themselves to El Chaltén and the camp manger will provide information on the various travel options available.

The proposed dates (arriving and departing in El Chaltén) are December 29th, 2018 to January 26th, 2019. The split dates would be December 29th, 2018 to January 12th, 2019. Or January 12th, 2019 to January 26th, 2019. For more information or for an application form, please contact Richard Berry at
