Cerro Fitz Roy (3375m - Patagonia/Argentina)

View of the Fitz Roy seen on the trail leading to Loma del Pliegue Tumbado (1540m).

Fitz Roy is also know as "El Chalten", the smoking mountain (name given by the native indians), as clouds often get stuck on the summit. It was first ascended in 1952 by two great French climbers : Guido Magnone and Lionel Terray.

I like this one...

even more than your current POTD. Both images show Fitzroy from an unusual angle.

Re: I like this one...

Thanks !
Fitz Roy is usually seen from East, as people walk up to Laguna de Los Tres. On this hike you can see it from South-East and South.

Re: Great!

Thanks for your kind comment. I spent 5 months travelling in the Andes, it gave some time to enjoy this wonderful place.
