shot of north and central tower.(central tower is on the far right, North tower summit is the right point of the middle double peak in the photo) The Monzino route starts at the notch between the North and Central Tower. Not really viewable in this shot.

Monzino route (on North Tower) 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a WI1 Easy Snow  South America : Chile : Torres Del Paine
The first and second pitch out of the notch, ( see approach.), is the easy 5.10 pitch. then the rest of the pitches, about 5 to7 of them, wind around giant features, meandering there way to the summit block. On the summit block is a fun 5.9 face climb. there is something on the top that you can rap off of, I forget what it was....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Two other Chile climbing websites:

chilemountains.info/pag.htm

This first one is better than it looks at first glance! Check out the climbing area map.

Climbing gear in Santiago:

www.andesgear.cl
www.tatoo.cl
www.justclimb.cl
www.chilemontaña.cl
www.lacumbreonline.cl

If you're contemplating going to Chile and leaving some gear at home, bear in mind that the cost is going to range for $10 more expensive for harnesses and simple stuff to as much as 30-50% more expensive for things like quickdraws and ropes. If you're looking at these sites, know that 1,000 Chilean pesos is equivalent to about $2.00 US.

Does anyone know of any climbs/bouldering near Villarrica, Chile? I will be moving there for the next couple of months and am not a highly experienced climber (no trad climbing) but would really like to take some of my gear down to experience the area, be outside and get some climbing in. Is it best to go with a guide in this area? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for people I could contact + spots I could look into?

Thank you,

Rachel
