Absolutely beautiful climb with some interesting conditions along the way - a little bit of drizzle and wind, but then sunshine and quiet air. Loved that hand crack and the constant awesome scenery all around!

Deb, Manuel Quiroga and myself did one of the best routes in Cerro Torre Valley!! 13 pitches of variety, checking in at 6c (.11a). Amazing views of Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy. Can't beat 2 weeks of clear weather, with temps in the high 70's!!
