Ascent Trip Report

From camp Poincenot, climbed the trail to Laguna de los Tres and hooked right through the basin and headed up the talus. Bootpath is cairned and easy to follow up the ridge. Followed the obvious NW ridge and made it to the saddle just before the start of the ridge scramble at around 1550m before turning back due to deteriorating weather. Looked like an amazing scramble; we just happened to attempt it on the wrong day.
