We take the road towards the Valley and after a 10-minute walk, you will cross an old suspension bridge that crosses the Ascencio River. About 150 meters later, appears a bifurcation: to the right leads to the Base of the towers.

Then follow a zigzag of marked pending and vegetated by one hour. The rise continues next to other side to reach the Chilean refuge after 45 minutes, located on the opposite bank of the Río Ascencio, shaded by a forest of lengas, with moderate slope, across several slopes falling from Almirante Nieto.
