On the roof of Tierra del Fuego
The Alvear cord belongs to the Andes Mountain Range most southern that may exist. Here runs from east to west.
We propose a semi-technical ascent following the course ice climbing dictated or simply to realize independently. A great adventure with great views, between sea and mountains.
Day 1: Transfer from Ushuaia, very early, to Tierra Mayor Valley. Down through the valley of Alvear, through forests up to the platau, by the small waterfalls + Camp and preparation snow and ice practices relevant. Rest.
Access to the summit. Ascent by corridors and crossings to the blade end, with a little snow and ice climbing of the end wall, to the plain ridge. We will take photos of summit and then descend to camp. Disarming the camp and descend to the valley. Transfer back to Ushuaia. End of program.
This ascent requires prior knowledge on snow, ice and management techniques crampons and ice axes, self-arrest.
