Walk Patagonia offers the possibility of learning about the world of climbing in the hands of the experts: professional mountain guides certified by the AAGM (Asoc. Argentina de Guías de Montaña) and EPGAMT (Escuela Prov. de Guías de Alta Montaña y Trekking). This activity is designed as either a school for beginners or a clinic for those who have a basic level and want to improve or be reminded of the basics. The perfect activity in one of the climbing mecas of the world!.


The rock climbing school can take place either in the morning or in the afternoon, depending on the time you have free and the weather conditions. It’s about 4 hours of class on various walls located near to El Chaltén. Depending on the level depends on what is done, but for the real beginners we use the “top rope” system, whereby the guide sets up a rope from above so as the climbers climb up they are always attached and safe from above, affording maximum safety to the climbers. The aim of this activity is for the climbers to learn the basic concepts of rock climbing. What a better way to understand the climbers that try to climb up Mt Fitz Roy?!.
