Mt Fitzroy, or El Chalten rises 3.375 meters in a mountain range that is frequently shrouded in thin clouds. The name, El Chalten, means “the mountain that smokes”, because when the indians first saw it, they thought the clouds were smoke from fire. Summiting is for expert rock climbers, as the steepness of the mountain and the consistent stiff wind make it very hard to climb.
