No, not that I know of.



This info and tops in fact come from the great book by Gino Buscaini and Silvia Metzelin that is only available in Spanish and Italian.

I believe that Cerro Electrico is, in fact, a technical ascent. A non-technical route leads to a col on the summit ridge within 100-200 vertical meters of the summit. However, as far as I know, the actual summit cannot be attained without 1-2 pitches of relatively easy rock-climbing. That, at least, is what the caretakers at Piedra del Fraile informed me. Preliminary scouting suggested the same, although the 100kph winds and blowing snow at 2100m made it difficult to be sure. There may be a class 4 route hiding there somewhere.

Excellent page, by the way. I may add pages for Cerro Madsen and Loma de Pizarra, but I need to find some pictures first.

And if you can, read these 3 reports in Hungarian, they have a hilarious style:

ricsBus to El Chalten

Hasn't voted

I went to El Chalten in March of 2011. The highway from El Calafate to El Chalten is now paved. the trip is fast (3 hours), the bus is comfortable, affordable (about $8 US) and there are two trips a day.
