In late February, Matteo della Bordella and Silvan Schupbach complete the first ascent of Cerro Riso Patrón Sur, on the west side of the Patagonian Ice Field. They set off from Puerto Eden, kayaking to basecamp, to then “fight” their way to the base of the peak, through thick forest and rivers. Conditions have been atrocious this season, so they found the wall covered in ice and rime. They chose a logical line on the left side of the face. In the lower part they mixed climbed a steep rock pillar, to a snowfield that leads to a beautiful upper ice wall. Except for a couple of pitches the climbing was not extreme, but the setting is as committing and distant as one can imagine. They climbed the route in a day, bivying on the descent. The return trip to Puerto Eden, heading west, against the prevailing winds, required five days of struggle. They called the route “Monkey Face”, because of the appearance of the upper face. Daniele Chiappa, one of Cerro Torre’s first ascensionists, had dreamt of climbing this face. The route is dedicated to him.
