Patagonia Summer Season

Patagonia is located in Southern Argentina. Patagonia is considered a vast area with many climbing options. The Fitz Roy Massif is one I am familiar with. The Fitz Roy Massif is accessed via flying from Buenos Aires to the town of El Calafate. Next, busing from Calafate to the town of El Chalten. I have had some of my finest moments around Fitz Roy. In the town of Chalten, playing music with the locals and climbing on the spires when the weather turns nice. The summer rock climbing seasons is from January to March. You must be patient with the weather. If you aren't patient, best not come. There are objectives for all levels. The larger objectives require endurance, pre training and experience to be successful. The smaller objectives can be obtained at an easier, and less committing style. Yet still enjoying the breath taking views of the surrounding mountains and Patagonia Icecap.
