Zuko traverse

First ascent: Andrej Grmovšek, Luka Krajnc 01/01/2013
By: Planetmountain
Area: Patagonia, Group: Torres del Paine, Peak: North Tower, Country: Chile, Region: Patagonia

On 01/01/2013 the Slovenian alpinists Andrej Grmovšek amd Luka Krajnc made the first ascent of Zuko traverse (V 5.10+, 650m). The route climbs the large corner immediately to the left of Los esclavos del barometro and to the right of Armas y Rosas and joins both these lines two pitches below the north summit of the North Tower. Thee rock is mostly good quality, except for section on pitch three.


Reach the Parque Nacional Torres del Paine from Puerto Natales. From Puerto Natales various bus operators offer open-ended return tickets to the park, almost 120km away. Buses depart at around 7 am and take over 4 hours to reach the park. The main entrance is Guardería & Rifugio Laguna Amarga, at the northern end of the park; all tourists are brought here and they must purchase a park permit and register before entering. Buses then continue to the Sede Administrativa Lago del Toro, from where most depart in the early afternoon for the return trip to Puerto Natales. From Guardería Laguna Amarga walk to Campamento Torres and then the Torres del Paine Lookout. Details of the trek.
