Thanks to Guido Freddi for adding this peak.

Is a beautiful mountain with plenty of climbing opportunities. No easy way to the summit. Beautiful views of Cerro Mercedario South Face. Away from major roads, requires a trek to get to his foot.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Pico Polaco in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.

    jarret tishmack and i opened a new route on the north face of pico polaco, the route starts in an obvious snowfield followed by a traverse to the right. this allows access to an obvious couloir line...
