This climbing guidebook describes every peak and climb in the dramatic Chaltén Massif in southern Patagonia, Argentina.

The peaks of the Chaltén Massif are some of the most iconic in the world, jagged spires that shoot toward the sky. They offer a wide variety of objectives, from enjoyable mountaineering outings, to unrepeated multi-day bigwall climbs. With its excellent quality granite and uniquely wild rime formations, it is one of the world’s ultimate alpine playgrounds, seducing climbers from every corner of the globe. Although this is not the faraway land it once was, the beauty of the peaks, the quality of the rock, unusual ice formations, and the moody nature of the weather, remain unchanged, providing fertile ground for enriching experiences and lasting memories.

This book describes every peak and climb in the area - 485 routes in 75 peaks. It includes 120 topos, 145 photo-topos, as well as 120 action or scenic photos. The first edition won the Best Guidebook award at the Banff Film and Book Festival in Canada. This is the third edition, and it has been updated and expanded with over 50 new routes that have been climbed since 2016.

A sumptuous guide in full colour with a massive amount of information, detailed topos, and fascinating historical detail, as well as fabulous photography throughout.

By Rolando Garibotti and Dörte Pietron, edited by Lindsay Griffin.
