W-hike exact distances

by srujan45 Online Now Jul 24, 2008 at 11:28 AM

Hi,

QUESTION 1: I have been looking for the exact length of W hike (Grey Glacier campsite -> Pehoe Campsite -> Campamento Brittanica -> Camp Los Cuernos - > Campamento Torres -> Refugio Torres) Can anyone tell me the exact distances between the above campsites. The FAQ on FantasticoSur does have some distances in proposed itineraries - but is not clear.

QUESTION 2: Another question I have is - Is it possible to get off the Catamaran/boat at Refugio Grey and start W-Hike from there?

QUESTION 3: Are there any places on this hike that're difficult for the acrophobic? People who're worried about walking about precipices. I hear - as we get close to the towers, it could get a little bit like that.

Thanks
Srujan

    I cant answer your first two questions, but I climbed to the base of the towers and I dont recall any precipices. Lots of scrambling over morrain and rocks and boulders. Great fun.
