      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!

Patagonia expaditions?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was just wondering what the guidebook for Patagoina was, or even if there was one?

Also for those who have been, what was the costs of your trip?

Cheers, Rob, who is dreaming of granite spires...

Jeaze, its almost as cheap as Denali or the Ruth! Is the website (and the alpinist issue) the only reliable and colected info on routes until your down there? Or is it all reserching spicific routes?

Cheers

We were on the no frills agenda. Alan Kearney has a guidebook - but most of it was a bit above our capability. We just talked with folks down there to find things to get up. Cerro Solo and Torre McMillian (? just a 4th class) were two that I remember. There are so many things down there if you're willing to trek a bit you can get a first ascent on minor peaks no one cares about.

 

If you want some rock Bariloche is the place to go and you can pick up a guide at the local climbing club headquarters
