Location: Paso del Cuadrado (1811 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Argentina      Date: 28-02-2014
This is the less known side of the Fitzroy, with the rather hidden Fitzroy Norte glacier. The view encompasses also the Pollone group and the Marconi - Gorra Blanca region of the Hielo Sur. Worth of note is also the sight on the red scree slope leading to the Cerro Eléctrico.
Concerning the latter, let me note that to be precise the present 360° has not been shot at the Paso del Cuadrado, but somewhat higher on towards what on the maps is commonly dubbed as «Cerro Eléctico Oeste». Garibotti considers this as a mistake made by some cartographer, since that name should reasonably apply to the black tower nowadays better known as Castillo Negro, which actually lies W of the main summit.

See N.18401 to locate the present work within the "seven views" project.

This is a very interesting and a very rare perspective, especially for the view on Fitz Roy. You really had a great time down there :)

Solo tu (o quasi) puoi riuscire a fare questi pano.

Jens: this is indeed the less know side of the mountain. As you may see, this is indeed a major flaw of the touristic mainstream, considering that the ascent to the pass is indeed long, but by no way demanding.

Giuseppe: Siamo in cinque ad aver visto questo. Poi semmai lo spiegherò in un'eventuale descrizione in inglese, ma quel giorno al passo ho incontrato solo due argentini al mattino e due canadesi al pomeriggio; considera che il giorno prima c'era sta gran bufera. Non abbiamo instaurato un vero dialogo, perché tutti quel giorno sembravano quasi pietrificati: anche i locali, che pure già conoscevano il posto, si mangiavano quel ghiacciaio con gli occhi.
Sono quelle giornate di cui una foto dà solo una pallida intuizione - nella misura in cui questa foto si può definire pallida (dato che è molto colorita, così come era l'originale).

Each panorama of your Patagoniatrip is a pleasure ... much more impressive than Helgoland, but also my impressions are not at the end ;-)!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

Not the dark side of the moon. This back of the Massif probably rarely to lights with the glacier flows to the bet. A magnificent sight.

The panos lives up to the promise of its title: Fantastic! Cheers, Martin
