Valle Encantado, Various Ascents. Since April, 1995, some new ascents have been made in this attractive and off-the-beaten-track area near Bariloche. Eduardo Lopez, Pablo Muller, Walter Rossini, Sebastian Mazzaro and Pablo Pontoriero did the second ascent of Torre Gebauer, the biggest tower of the valley, via a new route, Sol de Otorno (5+ A1, 250m, eight pitches). Recently, Alfredo Aliaga, Peti Olivieri and Facundo Jose did the third ascent of the tower by a new route, Horizontes Semiconquistados (6a+, 300m). It is interesting to note that the first ascent was done in 1974.
