The Patagonian Andes are the site of your mountaineering expedition. Among the peaks, expansive rivers, and thick coastal rain forests, you’ll learn the techniques of alpine big-glacier mountaineering and camping in challenging weather.
You’ll develop all the skills necessary to carry out remote expeditions and explore rugged and little-traveled mountain terrain. Teamwork, motivation, leadership, and communication are critical components of the course, as are meticulous glacier travel, hazard evaluation, and technical ropework.
This course will offer you the challenges of unknown terrain and fierce Andean weather, preparing you for travel in any mountain area in the world.
"In Patagonia--like in no other place--the magnitude, the rawness of the land keep you mesmerized and in constant awe. Change is dramatic and unmistakable--an incredible cure for complacency. I am small here. I have been greatly humbled. Live the opportunity of the moment, because it will not last.
