      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

What, if any, are some good resources for climbing in patagonia? Seems pretty easy to find topos for the BIG routes, but what about the routes for mortals on some of the satelite peaks?

By "patagonia" you mean the paine and fitzroy massifs, correct? Or are you interested in some mere mortal routes in a 1,500 mile region?

 

"Les Orgues de Patagonie" - Gino Buscaini (in French) is the best guidebook around.

If you can handle French (at least enough to understand the grades) a comprehensive book with plenty of maps and routes drawn on the photos is Altitudes No. 2 (2003), a French annual climbing journal.
