THE WINDOW

Known for iconic, golden granite spires and infamous for long periods of extremely hostile weather, the Chaltén Massif in Patagonia magnetically draws climbers from around the world during the austral summer months. While bouldering, eating and socializing around town fill much of the long, stormy stretches, everything in a climber’s life revolves around the next weather window and getting the chance to send in the mountains.
