Product Description

The dramatic Chalten Massif in southern Patagonia, Argentina, is home to some of the most iconic peaks in the world! Including Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. This ultimate alpine playground seduces climbers from every continent! The steep walls of these jagged spires range from 300 to 1500 meters tall, and from enjoyable day climbs to unrepeated horror shows. The massif also has countless classic alpine mountaineering objectives, involving snow, ice-climbing and scrambling. This climbing guidebook describes every peak and climb in the area. Although Chalten is not the faraway land it once was, the beauty of the peaks, the quality of the rock and the ferocity of the storms remain unchanged, offering climbers the timeless pursuit of real adventures and lasting memories. The guide is edited by Lindsay Griffin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patagonia Vertical is essential 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
If you are going climbing to Patagonia and the Fitzroy area in particular, this book you should get, at least a few weeks before you go. You need to assimilate a lot of very useful information here. It seems to cover all known routes and significant attempts, even suggesting unclimbed lines too. The history is given wide coverage with a section in the beginning and with each route as far as its known. Each routs has suggested tactics, equipment and approaches. The author has done a superb job.

And the pictures! This is climbing pornography.

4.0 out of 5 stars If Carlsberg Wrote Books About Mountains... 8 Jun 2013

This is such a well written and researched book. I would love to go climbing in Patagonia and this book tells me everything I need to know. But, frankly, even if you have no intention of going yourself, it's worth having this book just to read it on its own merit! I have also found it an invaluable reference when trying to follow other climbers' stories and route descriptions. An amazing, encyclopaedic reference.
