Patagonia 2011 ~ Update

There is no lonelier place in the world for a climber than arriving in El Chalten during high pressure.

Nate and I arrived at the tail end of high pressure, meaning the weather was good and every climber in town went "up". Lots of good success for many teams. One being Wharton and Neil Kauffman, they did a new route on Desmochada. Hats off to these guys. Rad!

For Nate and me, it's been a bunch of bouldering which is not something you would really consider while on an alpine climbing trip. It's amazing here in El Chalten, and quite a destination spot for many South American boulders. I sent V9 today!

Nate, Josh, and I are now hanging out with bags packed waiting for the upcoming weather window. At the moment things are looking quite good. Quite good!!!!
