Patagonia Mountaineering

Among the peaks, expansive rivers, and thick coastal rain forests of the Andes, you'll learn about big-glacier mountaineering and camping in challenging weather. You'll learn about outdoor living and leadership, plus teamwork and communication, in addition to the technical skills of glacier travel, hazard evaluation, and rope work.

This course will offer you the challenges of unknown terrain and fierce Andean weather, preparing you to lead and travel in challenging situations long after your course ends.
