Chile and Argentina: Trekking Continental ice - Fitz Roy (1200 m) / (3900 ft) and Cerro Torre (1100 m) /(3608ft)
An ice sheet is a mass of glacier ice that covers surrounding terrain and is greater than 50,000 km2 (19,000 sq mi), thus also known as continental glacier.
Monte Fitz Roy (also known as Cerro Chaltén, Cerro Fitz Roy: or simply Mount Fitz Roy) is a mountain located near El Chaltén village, in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field in Patagonia, on the border between Argentina and Chile. First climbed in 1952 by French alpinists Lionel Terray and Guido Magnone, it remains among the most technically challenging mountains for mountaineers on Earth.
