Up early the next day for a bus ride to El Chalten. Ate a dodgy cake on the way and was sick for 3 days!!! The weather was crap when we arrived, we did put on our gear to start a climb but the wind and weather and my stomach had me doubling back even before reaching the entrance. The next day we started the climb to view Fitzroy massive. Started the day with bad weather but continued regardless, lucky we did, the weather turned and we had amazing views of Fitroy. Fourtunatly for us we got lost as the tracks are not marked that well. I say fortunately cause we ended up at the bottom of another lagoon that wasnt on the tourist guide and had the Massif and lagoon all to ourselves..... 7 hours after we left the hostel (and many loo breaks) later we made it back to the hostel. Bus back to El Calafate for a few hours before another loooooonnnnng bus ride to Ushuaia.....
