What does it take to free climb a HUUUGE rock face in Patagonia? Apparently it takes a wizard. And a whistler, and a raccoon. But that's a given.
This is a web series about three climbers, Sean Villanaueva O'Driscoll, Stephane Hanssens and Merlin Didier who spend a month in the mountains in Patagonia putting up the first free ascent of Los Fabulos Dos on the east face of Cerro Catedral (1000m, 7c+).
Watch these cheeky boys in their intro video to the series, as they recount their careful selection of 'expert' climbers, climbing gear, and what kind of food to bring (potatoes and pigs?). You really just have to watch it...
You won't regret it.
Patagonian Epic, Getting to the Big Climbing Wall | The Whistler, the Wizard & the Raccoon Intro, Ep. 1
A 1000m vertical wall of excellent granite.
We carried all the gear and food for one month in the mountains and we spent one entire week on the wall living in our portaledge to try to reach the summit.
This series tells the whole adventure!
