Itinerary description

Rock climbing in Patagonia is a treat for anyone who enjoys this sport, one of the most intimate ways to connect with nature. And at the end of the day, get ready to enjoy a cold, homebrewed beer, a Patagonian asado and great conversation amongst other climbers once you've completed your day of climbing.
