The giant that rises from the horizon

The Lanin volcano is one of the most outstanding Andean figures of the Patagonia. Its greatness figure spreads admiration from the most forgotten places of the region.. It can be seen from 200 km away and it is difficult to confuse it with its magnanimous neighbors VILLARRICA (still active ), OSORNO and LLAIMA. Its name “LAN-IN” comes from the mapuche language and has several meanings: ”death rock”…and “ to get sink or we are sinking” 

You canclimb it by all its faces. The hardest wall is the southern one which has the most difficult technique; the most used is the northern one. It is a demanding  ascent and it has three basic and typical mountain shelters: BIM (military infantry battalion) at 2250 mts., RIM (Military infantry regimen) at 2350 mts (nowadays out of service) and  CAJA (Junín de los Andes Andean club) at 2450 mts. The view from its summit is extraordinary. If you look to the south you can observe (from the base) the lakes Huechulafquen, Paimún, Epulafquen , Lolog ,Lacar and  the exceptional view of the Tronador Mount (3554 m.a.s.l.) in the south of Bariloche. To the south: the Tromen, Quillwn, Ñorquinco lakes and to the West all the Chilean volcanos. This is an invitation to visit a magic but real mountain, a chance that nature offers us to live with our spirit full of emotions and feelings

 

 


Itinerary: 

Day 0 (previous day): Meeting in San Martin de los Andes in the afteroon. Presentation of the guides. Reccomendation about   accomodation an equipment rental  


Day 1: transfer to Tromen Pace located at the feet of the Northern face of the Lanin Volcano, where is located the post that will control the equipment of each person for the expedition.

After of 5-7 hours climbing a, we will reach the mountain shelter located at 2350 m.a.s.l.. Dinner and night In the shelter or tent.

Day 3: Very early in the morning and after breakfast we will start our attempt to climb the summit. From this point the marching is through permanent snow covered paths so it is necessary to use crampons  and picks to walk (the day before we will provide a brief explanation of how to use them and their safety). We will reach the summit (3776 m.a.s.l.) before midday. After the celebration we will descend to the shelter and then to the base. Transfer to Junin de los Andes and accomodation. End of our services.

assignmentNote:

Difficulty and specifications for the ascent:


It is a demanding ascent. On the first day we make an ascendant between 5 to 6 hours until we reach the shelter area at 1300 mts. We will spend the night in a shelter or tent depending on the availability. The second day (if the weather conditions is good) we will go for the summit leaving the shelter between 3 or 4 am (at night and using headlamp).This unevenness is about 1400 mts and it is located in a more technical terrain (long ice loosen rock slabs). We can only be in the summit for a few minutes to take some pictures and hydrate ourselves. Then we will descend to our night shelter, rest for a while and take our equipments to continue our descent to the mountain base (according to a new disposition established a few years ago, it is not possible to spend another night in the mountain). In the base, a transport will be waiting for us.
