El Regalo de Mwono is a single, striking crack system that runs straight up from the bottom to the top of the Central Tower. First ascended by the British climbers Paul Pritchard, Simon Yates, Sean Smith and Noel Craine between 1991 and 1992, this big wall rock climb was freed by the Belgians Nicolas Favresse, Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll and Siebe Vanhee after enduring 19 days on the wall.


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.
