Named after Captain Robert Fitzroy of the HMS Beagle, Cerro Fitzroy (11,171 ft) is a massive awe-inspiring granite spire rising beside the Southern Patagonia Ice Field. Forced upwards by the subduction of the Nazca Oceanic Plate under the South American Continental Plate, Fitzoy and its companion peaks, including the equally impressive Cerro Torre, have been sculpted by eons of glacial ice. The result is one of the most majestic and revered mountain cathedrals on earth.
