in de buurt El Arco, Los Lagos (Chile)

From la Junta there is a variety of possible tours, and Arco Iris is a wonderful choice for a single-day walk.
For long time you walk in the middle of the wood, until reaching a spectacular alerce site.
Higher up, you begin to find granite sections, which are overcome with the aid of fixed ropes. There are trees and even alerces, however, even after the lower granite sections.
After the end of the vegetation, you follow the easy ridge, up to a leftwardsa traverse below the main summit, which leads to the viewpoint which is the end of my trail.
I do not know if the classical Arco Iris is this point, the main summit (which for me was barely accessible due to the first autumn snow) or the spot, coming much earlier, marked as "Mirador Arco Iris". I can only witness the exceptional panoramic value of the destination chosen by me.

You are strongly encouraged to look at the labeled version of the summit 360° panorama, namely

Here I collected all my knowledge about the surrounding names, but I must admit that this knowledge is very incomplete, also because the only helpful site is

Please communicate to me if you have some correction or integration to the names reported there!!

You turn around it, rightwards when ascending, with the aid of some fixed ropes.

This is the steepest place. It would be impossible here to proceed safely without these ropes.

Here I turned left to the panoramic point. I guess that for the true summit I should have turned right, down into a little valley and then up, but there was too much snow on the rocks.

One of the best panoramas I have ever seen. Add also the feeling of total loneliness.

To be honest, on the site I did not single out a precise mirador, since all the ridge is extremely panoramic. To set the waypoint, I sticked to Openstreetmap.

    Ascenso con mucha pendiente, con zonas muy expuestas, donde hay cuerdas fijas instaladas, las vistas son increibles
