Photographer's Note

Fitzroy (3375 mt) is the high peak in a cluster of vertical rock spires that rise on the eastern edge of one of the great Patagonian ice caps. Several compact mountain groups rise alongside the ice caps, but the Fitzroy group is easily the most spectacular. Its rocky pinnacles tower with incredible steepness, providing fine rock wall climbs. Fitzroy, as well as Cerro Torre, another great peak which rises from a neighboring group, are located within Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina. Many other excellent climbs are located here as well. Across the border into Chile, the park extends to the Pacific coast as the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park. This area has traditionally been too remote to access without considerable difficulty, although tourism is now beginning to enter the area.
