The best way to reach Mount Alicia is to get to Mount Lindo first. There, apart from the cabin that has been constructed around 1960, there is a small formation called 'Valle de los Perdidos', which translated into English means something like 'Valley of the Lost Ones', where is possible to camp because there is plenty of water and wood for making campfires, alas, only a handful venture there.

This valley received its name due to the climbers that actually get lost in the area because there is a parallel formation known as 'Valle de la Luna' (Moon Valley) which is very similar and is the one where the trail to the cabin actually is, so when these folks are coming down from the summit of Mount Lindo, they get confused and enter the incorrect valley.

To the north the Valley of the Lost Ones is delimited by a small rock crest and the deep canyon formed between Mount Lindo and Mount Sin Nombre. There is a splendid view from there.

Both little valleys are somewhat higher than the spot where Mount Lindo's cabin actually is. Indeed, this cabin could be used by visitors trying to reach Mount Alicia as well.

From the Moon Valley it is easy to descend to the cabin because there is a good trail there; attempting to do so from its sister valley is not so easy, though. There is a significant waterfall and important rocky walls at its eastern end.

In fact, a couple of visitors got confused and believing that this was the way down and back to the cabin, they got lost by entering a place where they could only be picked up by helicopters.
