The Sharks Finn is located in Patagonia, Chile. This stunning feature sits at the head of the French Valley in Torres del Paine National Park.

The trip will begin on the 30th of November 2009 and will carry through December 7th 2010. Contact Walker for more information.

Day 1

The first day of our trip will lead us to Campamento Británico, located on the boundaries between the forest and the moraine deep into the French Valley. We will take catamaran across the beautiful lakes of Torres Del Paine to a refuge. From the refuge we will hike to base camp. From base camp we will get ready for our attempt to the south face of the peak.

 Day 2

The following day we will approach to the base of the wall carrying some of the gear we will need for the climb, it will give you a first impression of the climb itself. By hiking to the base of the feature you can gain valuable experience with the wilderness of Patagonia.

 Day 3-7

After this point we´ll be looking for a good weather window (Up To 5 days) which allow as to climb and return back safely to the Base Camp. The key to climbing a peak in Patagonia is patience, during this waiting period we will be playing many games of chess in the tent and perfecting our cooking skills. Consider the time leading up to the climb as a rest period. During this time take time to recognize the wonder of the environment you have chosen to spend your time.

 Day 8

After celebrating the magic of the climb we’ll hike back to Campamento Paine Grande, where the catamaran will be waiting for us.
