Climbing permit and permission

According to Lonely Planet Chile, a Climbing permit (with climbing resume and authorization from consulate) and a permission from Direccion de Fronteras y Limites are required to trek Torres del Paine.

Is it true?

My friend did the trekking before and said that no such requirements.

For trekking in the park you simply need to pay your entrances fee and stay on the paths. To do any climbing in the park you need to do the necessary paper work and get a permit.
