In four days I will head south for my fifth Patagonian climbing expedition! I am extremely excited and I am as ready as I can be. My partner in crime is former ACS owner and all around hard hitter Pete Fasoldt.
This trip will be our third time climbing together in the Fitzroy massif. We have many objectives and now we can only hope for good weather. We will spend one month based out of the small town of El Chalten.
Two other ACS guides are also spending the winter months climbing in Patagonia. Both Grant Simmons and Joel Enrico are presently in Chalten being blown around the mountains by the ceaseless Patagonian winds. I am very excited to spend time with these guys and have an ACS party at the southern reaches of the globe.
I have spent countless hours organizing and packing and trying to take only what is needed. For me that leaves a lot of wiggle room. (ex. Bannanagrams)
I want to thank Sterling Rope and Cadillac Mountain Sports for their support and for providing me with world class gear for this trip. Below are some photos of previous trips to the area. Enjoy, and stay tuned for more updates from down south!
