It's rare for things to come together perfectly in the challenging mountains of Patagonia, but for climbers Matteo Della Bordella, Luca Schiera, and Silvan Schupbach they absolutely did. Not only did they repeat the classic climb 'Chiaro di Luna,' but the ideal weather conditions and strength of the team meant that they were able to add a direct variation to the line. Topping out Saint-Exupery by any route would rank as a fantastic achievement, but to do so with such pioneering spirit and alpine efficiency makes this a truly exemplary ascent.
