No previous mountaineering experience is necessary for this course. Just a willingness to learn and desire for adventure and challenge. We start at the beginning, teaching you the basic day to day skills of mountain life: moving with a heavy backpack, selecting and securing a campsite, and staying warm and dry in inclement weather. As the course progresses, you will take an increasingly active role in the running of the expedition, ultimately having the opportunity to develop your leadership skills by taking on the role of group leader. (With close support from your instructors).
What makes this course so special, is not just what you learn, but where you learn it: In the most amazing classroom in the world. Patagonia has a magical reputation and deservedly so. It is a place of breathtaking beauty and remoteness. Here you can stand on a mountaintop encircled the wilderness and feel like you are the only person in the world.
A mountaineering expedition with The Patagonia Mountaineering School will be a rich and rewarding experience. We will go to places few other people go, see things few other people see and face challenges you might once have thought you were not capable of.
You Can Do Extraordinary Things.
Two hours later, after packing your bag, we put on our crampons and begin crossing the Exploradores Glacier. Our goal for the day is to walk 10 km (about 6 miles) up the glacier, to the base of an unclimbed ridte. Tomorrow we will climb this wall of ice, to the summit of a spectacular peak.
Nine hours later, you collapse in camp, tired and happy. Picking your way amongst the crevasses of the glacier was difficult, but not as hard as you thought it would be.
As you get into your sleeping bag, having just eaten a delicious curry, you go to sleep tired, happy, and ready to do it again the next day.
