South America, Argentine—Chilean Patagonia, Cerro Catedral, Bariloche

Cerro Catedral, Bariloche. In the lake district near the Chilean frontier, Bariloche enjoys a much more favorable climate than further south in Patagonia. The Cerro Catedral massif has a multitude of rock towers (up to 250 meters in height) of excellent granite, which have made this the rock-climbing center of the Argentine. After Daniel Anker and I stopped by when returning from southern Patagonia in 1989, there has been an explosion of new routes, many established by Rolo Garibotti.
