Patagonia Sufferfest 08/09 is getting ready to kick things into high gear! Well, the days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder, and I am almost ready to go. The tent is seam sealed, crampons are sharpened, and the flask is ready to be filled! Leaving on Sunday morning for Buenos Aires to visit a friend for a few days, then off to Mendoza to climb in the Cordon del Plata, hoping to summit Cerro Plata (5,800 meters), as well as some lower peaks before going south and suffering on the real stuff.
Here is just a little taste of what's to come, a shot of the Cerro Torre group, and a foreshortened view of the route Rubio y Azul on the Torre de la Media Luna which I'll be getting on a little later in the trip... photo courtesy dave daly. I will be posting photos and updates here for the most part, so check here to get the buzz on Patagonia Sufferfest 08/09! Take care and have a kick ass winter, wherever you are, whatever you're doing.
