From the Portal Store website.

Hello! We are out of the park for a few days, resupplying for the next two months. We have been there for 25 straight days and caught that weather window! We climbed for 15 days single push capsule style up the East Face of the North Tower of Paine. We free climbed every pitch except for one 6ft section that went at C1. It could easily be freed at 5.12 ,but with the weather closing and food diminishing we had to worry about seeing the summit. This makes the first complete route up the East Face of the North Tower. We planned on 12 days but were trapped for 15. Our portaledge is destroyed from ice and rock fall, most of our ropes are chopped, and the haul bags our all shot. It was absolutely intense! We summited in an entire white-out on day 13. Trapped in our tattered ledge for day 14 in the same white-out. Day 15 we pitch the bags from 2000ft up with the first hit of sunshine and start rappelling to the glacier below.

Sounds like some sending being done by good friends. Hoping that every one else down there is sending as well.

Here's the direct link to that thread.

Nothing makes you an armchair climber quicker than boobs and babies. Nice work on the wall - some of us have to actually work and perpetuate the species...

Seriously - looks epic and hardcore.
