A guide to climbing some volcanoes in Chile...
Access can be difficult due to new mining activity stopping access to the original trail.
|Volcano Tolhuaca 2806m|
|Duration:||2 Days, 1300m ascent|
|Grade:||Medium - route finding skills needed|
|Costs:||Small fee for access over private land|
|Equipment:||Ice axe and crampons in early season|
Apparently the trail marked on the 1:50,000 map has been closed due to private mining activity stopping access. It may be possible to start from Laguna Blanca (access via private land - small fee payable) but allow 2 days and camp at the lake to make an early morning start.
Route: I haven't done this trail myself. From Laguna Blanca the trail aparently heads up the valley, following the right hand stream towards its source before making a rising traverse to the left to join up with the original trail and on to the summit.
