Patagonia Alpine FAs, Video TR.
« on: April 12, 2011, 08:44:13 am »
So I already posted this thing over at the Taco, but figured I'd spread it around a bit more.  This place is unreal:  huge backcountry big walls, some of which sport some serious objective hazards (imagine a double wide El Cap with a hanging glacier and constant serac fall!)  Kind of like Cochamo, where the cracks look splitter in the binoculars, but upclose reveal bottomed out buttcracks that take tipped out beaks placed in dirt.  But then we moved over into an adjacent valley and got to play on a huge version of the Incredible Hulk, with an insane approach (the Death Slabs with muliple 5.10 pitches...  looong.) I'll let the video speak for itself though.

Expedition: Turbio IV

Absolutely fantastic!  Great to see that 'Adventure' is alive and well with you cats.  Even sketcky Kelly and other curmudgeons (myself included) have to appreciate your efforts, totally full value stuff.  Plus I got to drink an extra cup of coffee while I took in your TR this morning.
