Aguja Poincenot 3036m
One of the highest peaks on the south Patagonian ice-cap and one of the most famous peaks in the Andes. It lies in the Los Glaciares national park in Argentina. Also known by the native name of Chalten. A very difficult ascent first climbed in the 1950's by a French team.
Aguja Poincenot is another pinnacle lying immediately south of Fitzroy.
