Torres del Paine National Park Adventure Tours
The best known and most spectacular summits are the three Towers of Paine (Spanish: Torres del Paine). They are gigantic granite monoliths shaped by the forces of glacial ice.
The South Tower of Paine (about 2,500 meters) is now thought to be the highest of the three, although this has not been definitely established. It was first climbed by Armando Aste.
The Central Tower of Paine (about 2,460 meters) was first climbed in 1963 by Chris Bonington and Don Whillans, and the North Tower of Paine (about 2,260 meters) was first climbed by Guido Monzino.
Other summits include the Cuerno Principal, about 2,100 meters, and Cerro Paine Chico, which is usually correctly quoted at about 2,650 meters.
