WINNER OF THE 2013 BANFF BOOK FESTIVAL PRIZE AS BEST GUIDEBOOK OF 2013!
 
Finally, the ultimate climbing guide to the great peaks of Patagonia Argentina: Fitzroy, Cerro Torre, and all the surrounding peaks! One of the finest climbing guides ever published!
 
Argentina, 2013, 1st edition. IN ENGLISH!  368 color pages covering 250 routes in 39 peaks, including 90 topos, 120 photodiagrams (photo-topos) as well as 100 more photos.The dramatic Chaltén Massif in southern Patagonia, Argentina, is home to some of the most iconic peaks in the world, including Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. The steep walls of these jagged spires range from 300 to 1500 m, and from enjoyable day climbs to unrepeated horror shows. Although this 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.

It covers the Cerro Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre chains, as well as Cordón Adela, Cordón Marconi, Cerro Piergiorgio and the Cerro Pollone group. It is a complete guidebook to the area, describing every peak and climb. The text includes general information, history, approaches, route descriptions, recommended gear, strategy and descents.
 
About authors
Rolando Garibotti grew up in Bariloche, Argentina, and first vi­sited the Chaltén Massif in 1986 when, aged 15, he climbed Aguja Guillaumet. At the time El Chaltén had a single, empty house. Since then he has climbed in the area relentlessly, and resides there during the summer months. His finest ascents in the region include the first complete ascent of the north face of Fitz Roy in 1996, the first ascent of Cerro Torre from the north in 2005, and the first ascent of the Torre Traverse in 2008. He lives in Wyoming during the northern hemisphere summer.

Dörte Pietron first climbed in the area in 2008. In a short time she climbed Fitz Roy four times, including the second female team ascent of the peak via the lengthy Afanassieff route, and the third ascent of Ensueńo. She has climbed Cerro Torre twice, including the first female ascent of the Ragni route. She grew up in Heidelberg, Germany, and received a degree in physics before becoming a mountain guide. She is head coach of the German Alpine Club’s female young alpinists team.
