Your average Patagonian ripio, nothing out of the ordinary. Southern Carretera Austral has worse sections. Deflate your tires and expectations and you will be fine. A little bit of speed goes a long way in smoothing the washboards.

Report Check-In

For the moto amigos… the first 15kms headed south have some very lose excessively deep river pebble sections, staying in the car tracks is ok but now and then you end up in deep stuff without too much warning… then it gets better but still rolling around on marbles with the occasional surprise deep patch until 50kms in. Once you cross the last bridge over the Rio grande things get corrugated but with good traction and you can pick up the pace without too many surprises and much better grip.
