No Sean, I haven't been in Torres del Paine, just the other side in Fitzroy. I think the Chilean side is a bit less expensive than Argentina. We found southern Argentina to be very pricey when we were there. In contrast, the tropical north was cheaper, and actually we enjoyed it more.Oh man, everything you post is a place I'd like to go. Have you been to Torres del Paine also? Patagonia is a fabled destination for climbers, but known for incredible wind. A former climbing partner of mine went to climb Cerro Torre in 1997, and sat in his tent while the wind blew for 3 straight weeks.
