An enjoyable climb on mostly solid rock. The first half offers good crack climbing (and a stellar p5) for half a day and from the top of the pillar (p6) it is easy to rap to the Col del Bloque Empotrada approach and down this. The upper part provides more strenuous crack climbing (mostly fingers) and is worth repeating (especially if the weather isn't good enough for bigger adventures). Sheltered from the west winds.
From El Chalten reach Paso Superior.
From Paso Superior to Glaciar Piedras Blancas Superior (1h)
Doubles to #3, one #4, triples #0.3-1 useful, 4-5 TCUs, 1-2 set stoppers. Crampons & Ice axes if p11+12 are mixed. We left no gear in place.
