Cerro San Lorenzo is one of the highest and remote places of Patagonia, located 300 km aprox north of Cerro Torre and El Chalten massif. Is not as famous as other Patagonian areas and this is what gives to it the flavour of a great adventure. This mountainous chain of the central Patagonia dominates one of the last explored areas in the world. Without a doubt, this offers to mountain lovers a wide range of opportunities.

Towards the west we have a dense rain forest, towards east the drier Patagonian steppe. Cerro San Lorenzo is the natural frontier that distinguishes the climates. There is an abundance of fossilized forests and Paleolithic pits of the indigenous people that give testimony to the past in the forms of crafts and cave paintings. The mountain was first climbed in 1943 by a team leaded by the Italian missionary and photographer Alberto de Agostini. Cerro San Lorenzo is an immense glaciated peak( the 2nd highest in Patagonia) located in the Argentine border SE of Cochrane.

The ascent of the peak itself is a 7 to 10 days expedition requiring solid glacier progression and some easy ice climbing skills.
Is an excellent option for ski tourers. Also remote valleys at the base of the peak makes it spectacular for almost every trekker.
