Patagonia: Mount Fitzroy
Season 1, Episode 9
Rugged Patagonia offers Himalayan-quality drama in a small package. Just above El Chalten, South America’s unofficial trekking capital, rises the jagged silhouette of Mt. Fitzroy – revered and iconic in the world of mountaineering and photographed thousands of times. Art sets off in search of a different view of the peak.
En route, he treks through an ancient forest, fords an icy river, goes under a glacier and traverses one of the largest ice caps in the world.
