Andes, Argentina. Climbing Fitzroy (Cerro Fitzroy), 3375 m. Classic climb of Cerro Fitzroy (3375 m) by the South East Ridge

Are you ok? Are you sure it is what are you looking for? Climbing Fitzroy is one of the hardest mountain climbing routes in the world... 

The climbing program of elite class "Climbing Mount Fitzroy” is a status program of MCS AlexClimb, one of the brightest and most beautiful mountaineering programs of our collection. The climbing ascent of this level is not a commercially oriented program due to the technical difficulty of the route, which is equally difficult and dangerous for both the client and the guide. This program can in no way be considered as training or entertaining, as it requires from the participants to have perfect alpine climbing and rock climbing techniques in conditions of extremely high physical exertion. Although climbing Mount Fitzroy takes place in one of the most beautiful mountainous regions of the world, one should not expect romantic enthusiasm or constant mountain scenery to enjoy during  this program - there are many trekking programs for this purpose, and with such difficulty of the task, all other factors are secondary.

The climbing program "Climbing Mount Fitzroy" is a high-level climbing program which goal is to reach the summit of one of the most technically challenging peaks in the world, the famous climbing "idol" - the top of Mount Fitzroy 3405 meters, located on the border between Argentina and Chile in Patagonia. Climbing Mount Fitzroy is a serious test of climbing maturity, good chance to test yourself for both physical and psychological readiness to withstand the most serious challenges. This ascent of Mount Fizroy requires from the participants the complete commitment, focusing on the goal, understanding the difficulty of the route and the likelihood of the retreat in the very probable case of adverse conditions. Participants are required not only perfect mastery of climbing techniques, significant experience of previous technical class ascents, the ability to work effectively on vertical rocky terrain, but also psychological stability, patience and prudence - that is, the whole “set” of qualities that makes the top difficulty climbing routes relatively safe.

The Fitzroy climbing area, which contains many granite peaks of high climbing complexity, is famous not only as a climbing Mecca, but also as an area of ​​abnormally unstable weather, which caused a large number of failures and emergencies. This feature is to be taken into account when drawing up a tactical ascent plan and significantly lengthens the program by adding additional spare days, the number of which directly determines the success level of the program.

This 12-day program "Climbing Fitzroy, Argentina" is designed for people who have no illisions about what they can expect in the mountains. Climbing route of Fitzroy is extremely technically difficult, requires a discipline, coherence, good physical form and possession of practiced skills in belaying and dealing with different types of mountain terrain. Regardless your climbing experience, we would not discuss this program if you did not proove your climbing abilities in the technical climbs with our guides. 

The First Principle of MCS AlexClimb
The First Rule, by which we are guided in the development of our mountain programs - is safety. Professional Guides lead the group, the highest quality certificated equipment and the most modern navigation equipment are used.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
