The valley that the Southern Blanco River, in Argentina, has carved is approximately 20 km long, and it is mostly inaccessible. In fact, it wasn't until 1984 that humans set foot on it: The expedition that reached Mount Roca del Tiempo on the ninth day of March of that year had to cross this valley in order to actually start climbing the mountain in question.

This was indispensable, for Mount Roca del Tiempo is completely surrounded by the different fingers or water streams that form the Blanco River, which, in turn, goes from West to East thorough very deep and vertical canyons.
