K2 Route on Corcovado
A very sought after classic, this is the most accessible climbing route on Corcovado mountain. It’s a very aesthetic and aerial route on the East face of this iconic mountain, and combines different climbing techniques, passing through long dihedrals, slabby traverses and crimpy sections. It’s 4 to 5 pitches long and it’s best climbed during the afternoon when it gets some good shade. Some sections might take a few days to dry out after a strong rain. The crux pitch is rated 5.9/5c, and the rest of the route is a bit easier, but it gets more run out on its second half.
