beautiful hike at the end of my month long trip in Patagonia. less of a crowd, which was pleasant to experience. it was quite cold and windy at the top. my friend i took shelter behind a rock while we ate lunch
Day hike with about 10 people. Weather was fine until near the top when it started snowing with strong winds, but not bad enough to stop me pushing on to the summit. It cleared up again quickly and I could see a long way out. I really enjoyed the climb, great views and contrasts of landscape along the way.
There was some fresh snow from about half way up on, but we got lucky with weather and enjoyed beautiful views of Tierra Del Fuego from the top. It reminded me a lot of Southeast Alaska. Afterwards we got to soak our feet in serene Lago Roca.
Waited ages for a good weather window then headed out, pitched a tent and climbed up for some great views. Only 4 other people out that day. Took in the international border after getting back down to the lake, very scenic and plenty of interesting birds around.
