Cerro Fitz Roy, Mount Fitz Roy or Chalten Hill as it is known, has an altitude of 3,405 meters above sea level, which at that latitude is very large.
The Fitz Roy Hill is located to the east of the Southern Patagonian ice field on the border between Argentina and Chile.
The Fitz Roy Hill is the most striking summit of a huge group of haughty and challenging peaks and peaks, considered the small brother of the Torres del Paine of Chilean Patagonia, but that has certain characteristics that make it very interesting.
