Patagonia Expedition Update No 9 – Laguna Ferrari Glacial Lake

The group has made it safely off the main ice and is setting up camp for the night in a sheltered area by the Laguna Ferrari glacial lake. Plenty of water here and no need to melt snow for drinking water tonight ! Tomorrow is the climb out over the Paso del viento (windy pass) aptly named as the prevailing winds are strong here.

Fortunately the current wind is gentle and from the North so there will be no ‘funnel effect’ for the group tomorrow. There are fantastic views of peaks including Cerro Grande and Cerro Azara. The route will pass to the south of the Glacier De Querrain and the Glacier Rio Tunel. Weather forecast is sun all day so we should get some fantastic photos from this, the most ‘scenic’ day of the trek.
