description

Access:
From the town of Osorno, go to Puerto Varas (easy to reach with public transport) and then to Ensenada (there is a bus line). From Ensenada, the ski resort is 15km away (dirt road). When the resort is open, hitching works well.

Itinerary:
From the ski resort, go up the ski runs to the top. From there, go up the broad shoulder towards the NE. At aprox. 2100m, on a flatter area, go E and up the obvious last slope to the summit. This slope is often icy and can have short 45° sections (crampons can be useful). The last 100m are not always skiable on descent.

Descent variation: at aprox. 2100m, instead of going down on the shoulder, go W down the bowl and then put the skins back on to get back on the ski runs (400m higher).

remarks

The National Park administration (CONAF) is very annoying with regards to skiers and climbers attempting the ascent. Make sure you have all the necessary safety gear for glacier travel and can demonstrate you know how to use it!
