Looks great - granite and glaciers. And looks like a nice climbing challenge. Maybe somewhere near the patagonian icecap?

Kind of a gem and hard to see from the road. Seven hour, somewhat knarly, approach and quality granite.

It's un-named and un-climbed. It's right out your front door, a truck ride and a hike from your house in Patagonia. It's above the glacier you named for your wife! Am I close?

Thom Englebach and I climbed it 6 or 7 years ago....14 pitches 11- with one short tension traverse. A lot more potential in the area.

Looks to be the same or similar formation that Dave Anderson, Jared Spaulding and Nacho Elorza climbed 3-4 years ago in Chilean Patagonia, accessed out of Cochrane or thereabouts. Looks fantastic in there. Avelleno towers if I remember correctly. That is not it in the photos but I recognize the formation.

Jim, you interested in hosting a small climber's convention down at your place next year?
Kind of in the same spirit as the Russian competitions of old, ie, we all just go out, send, bring back stories, and have a grand old time?

Hoots you are correct, the South Avelleno Tower. Nacho et al did a tower or two a bit north of this one.
A climbing meet next year might be in order.

I was there in 2004 with Nacho Grez, Jamie Selda and Steve Herlihy we climbed some stuff to the north of Donini's route. Good fine grained granite and lots of potential. With the weather seemingly getting better in that part of the world I am tempted to go back!
