Aconcagua Team begins moving gear to Camp 1 at 16,300 feet -  Mountain Trip -- The North Face of Ushba 4694m in Georgia (Russia) - ski descent - includes video -- Cerro Torre (Patagonia) - Los Tiempos Pardidos into the Directa Huarpe
Quentin Lindfield Roberts and Chris Willie @ckwillie climbed Los Tiempos Perdidos into the Directa Huarpe to within a pitch and a half of the summit of Cerro Torre. There they encountered thick rime and lacking wings, they decided to retreat. During the descent along the Ragni Route, Chris was hit by a rock and briefly lost consciousness. Quentin got him to a safe spot, and after resting several hours they managed to continue. The hike out via Paso Marconi was long, with deep slushy snow, and little in the way of food. Kudos to them for the good climbing and also for managing very well what was a very dire situation. #selfreliantbadassmofos
