6a Lo dejamos ahi

Known locally as "the easiest rock climb in El Chalten", at least, it is the easiest multi-pitch. Has been climbed in winter with ice axes and crampons.

From the wooden bridge walk south towards the old orange bridge/flying fox thing. Take first small branch trail you come to, just before the orange flying fox, the track leads to a massive boulder field from significant rockfall, the climb starts just up and right from the debris field.

The climb is recognisable by the large smooth slab comprising the top third which has a right trending diagonal crack with a belay cave half-way.

Apparently no harder than 6a.

To descend, from the final anchor, walk north along the ledge for a few metres to a rap station. It would be awkward to abseil from the final anchor and hit the previous belay due to the diagonal nature of that pitch.

Set: Alberto Del Castillo, Oscar Pandolfi & Marcelo Pagani

Sport 150m, 4, 7
6b A la torre

Directly opposite Hosteria Vertical Lodge. From wooden bridge, walk south ~100m past the old orange bridge structure, then a bit further and head up hill. All belays have rings for abseiling. Rock quality is poor in spots but no worse than any other route on this wall.

6 pitches:

  1. 25m, 5 bolts, Straight up easy slabs

  2. 25m, 5 bolts, Trending left around bulge

  3. 30m, 8 bolts, Easy scramble up and right past 2 or 3 bolts and scree, climb short face (3rd bolt on face hidden), then trend left to sloping ledge and belay.

  4. 30m, 12 bolts, Straight up steep wall, 1st bolt heads left but easier ground right, then right-facing corner and awkward mantle on to sloping ledge, followed by another right-facing corner and mantle.

  5. 15m, 5 bolts, Ridiculous horizontal traverse.

  6. Crux, 20m, 8 bolts, Straight up, then up steep wall with pockets.

Descent Options:

  1. Walk-off. Still need rope to climb above final anchor, then walk left ~200m to walk-down gully.

  2. Abseil, very awkward to hit 4th belay on abseil due to the horizontal traverse. Then abseil ~53m to 2nd belay and ~40m to ground.

  3. Alternatively, abseil to 5th belay, then ~50m to 1m dirt ledge where you can carefully walk across to 2nd belay. ~40m to the ground from 2nd belay.

Set: Juan Manuel Raselli & Roberto Treu

Diagonal right crack and ramp. Start 5m right of "Main Wall Bolted 4" past bush and crack/groove. Crux is between first 2 bolts with side clings either side. Awkward to clean the route as it wanders ~6m right to shared lower-offs.

Sport 15m, 6
6b Main Wall Bolted 6

Start at seam into right leaning flake. Option to lower-off at ~9m, or continue to shared lower-offs 2 bolts higher. 2m of dirt erosion at cliff base has made the start harder and put the first bolt about 5m above the ground with tricky moves.

Set: Roberto Treu

Sport 12m, 6
6a+ Main Wall Bolted 7

At far right of main wall, up slightly overhung hand and finger crack, then left-ish to shared lower-offs.Probably harder start now given the 2m of dirt erosion at cliff base. First bolt is ~5m up. Black Diamond 0.5 or 0.75 cam useful to protect the heinous start.
