NotesMonte Fitzroy is simply one of the most spectacular mountains in the world. Day-walks and multi-day walks of 3-4 days take you to various vantage points, past lakes and glaciers. It's well worth an early start for a view of Monte Fitzroy at sunrise from the Laguna de los Tres lookout. Even a novice (like me) has a fair chance of spotting a torrent duck or magellanic woodpecker.
