Description

The 180m high wall across the river on the Eastern side of El Chalten. There are at least 4 long routes here, and many more will go up with time.

Approach

Use the bridge which brings you to the northern end of the wall

Descent Notes

Rappel the routes, or if windy there is a walk down track on the north (Fitzroy) side. Walk across the rocky plateau and look out for cairns to get onto a well trodden tack that finishes close to the bridge.
