Mountain Ascents and Traverses
Gorra Blanca Peak - 2907 mts. - Marconi Pass

Itinerario detallado

This program is meant for those who are willing to have a very close view of the extensive white South Patagonian Ice camp. However, this expedition has neither the same duration nor the same physical demands as the complete 9-days long expedition. It is technical trekking, which enables participants to enjoy landscapes of spectacular beauty. Its duration is also ideal, and it avoids the tiredness caused by the difficult climatic conditions in this valley.

Day 1:
El Chaltén - Piedra del Fraile - La Playita camp

Day 2:
La Playita camp - Marconi pass - Gorra Blanca refuge (CH)

Day 3:
Gorra Blanca Peak climb - Gorra Blanca refuge

Day 4:
Gorra Blanca refuge - El Chaltén

NOTES AND EXPLANATIONS

It is vital for each participant to check all his/her equipment properly before traveling. Said equipment must be in good conditions, it must be comfortable and of course, it must be apt for the purpose. If at half the traverse, any element of the equipment fails, we will not be able to go on normally or of course replace it.
As for clothes, we always recommend synthetic ones, especially for the inner ones and the torso ones: if you wear sweated cotton t-shirt, you will suffer cold very much until our body helps it dry.
