“Climbing around El Chaltén”
"...As part of a two-week hiking/trekking trip in Patagonia, my wife and I happened to have a free day in El Chaltén. It was supposed to be a rest day, but...the hosteria we stayed at had a beautiful climbing wall literally 30 feet away! (It turns out, all of El Chaltén is closely surrounded by climbing walls, most within walking"
““Best Excursion of the vacation””
"We booked the Full day of Ice Climbing with Mountaineering Patagonia. Merlin was very responsive to our needs prior to our trip and as soon as we got to El Chaltén he walked over to our condo to introduce himself. The night before our trip he stopped by and got us set up and fitted with our equipment so the next morning we were ready to go.
The hike out was long but Merlin kept us entertained the entire 3 hours!
Merlin's knowledge about El Chaltén and the surrounding mountains was spectacular and he was more then willing to answer all our fun gringo questions. I would 100% recommend booking with Mounatineering Patagonia, if we had to do it again we would have stayed in El Chaltén longer and done more excursions. Thanks MERLIN!"
