Cerro Torre

The embodiment of extreme mountaineering. Beside the Eiger Northface and the Walkerpfeiler, this is THE big goal.

Who amongst the ambitious mountaineers does not dream about standing on this impressive granite needle in the wilderness of Patagonia?

We try to make your dreams come true and want to give you the opportunity, to come with us to Patagonia and try to achieve what seems impossible.
Therefore we are proud to present you no less than Patagonia specialist Markus Pucher as your exclusive mountain guide. Markus is an expert in this area and already climbed the Cerro Torre several times, including two free solo ascents.

Even though there is no guarantee for the summit because the weather is simply too unpredictable, we try to influence the rest of the circumstances as good as possible by employing the most experienced mountain guides and provide the best logistics available.

Requirements and schedule:

A prior get-together at home is crucial, regarding safety and professionality. Here, the alpine experiences and expectations of the participant and the guide will be discussed. After that, a 3-day tour in the Alps will be arranged and after that the further details will be specified. Like this the program can be tailored according to the wishes and abilities of the member and a time frame for the expedition will be fixed.

The period for the travel to Patagonia will be December and January approximately 21 days. The plan is to climb the Torre from the west over the Ferrari Route. If the weather or other conditions should not be appropriate for a climb we will arrange an alternative target like the Fitz Roy or something similar. If there is nothing “big” possible for this period, we offer a refund of up to € 2.000.
