Hi there

I'll being reporting from the trip on my website www.peterhodes.co.uk if you're interested

Thanks very much for your help!

Pete

First I thought this was a troll. Then it turned out to really be a Troll. But it's such a proud mission I voted anyway.

I just voted, it was easy too, not some ridiculously long drawn out voting process. Anywho, see you in the TR.
It's a tribal thing

Pete can suffer with the rest of em.  Check out this sweet video he made of an attempt on a free line on Cerro Catedral last year in Torres del Paine.

Pretty bad ass. One of those guys tried to lead the Bachar-Yerian without clipping any of the bolts!
