I’ve now been in Patagonia for one month, and the weather has been remarkably bad, even by Patagonian standards. On Saturday, despite high winds, @fabi_buhl and I had a fun day in the mountains, climbing Cerro Electrico and Aguja Guillaumet. It wasn’t the sort of big objective we’d been dreaming about, but we were happy to have a big day of moving quickly in alpine terrain. It’s a way to climb Guillaumet as a day trip that I would highly recommend, with less trail than the normal approach, and more high alpine terrain. The majority of the past month the weather has been too poor to go alpine climbing, but unlike an expedition to a place like Denali, life in Chaltén is pretty darn good during the bad weather. There’s much less wind and precipitation around town than up in the mountains, with lots of bouldering, sport climbing, and hiking/running to do. The first photo is of my longtime friend, climbing partner, and mentor, @rolo_garibotti simul-soloing an easy multi-pitch route across the river from town. Photos 2-5 are from Guillaumet on Saturday,
