It truly screwed up for this lady. The small rope used to drag again the pulley bought tangled. The information earned his cash — and impressed me — by sliding over on the cable utilizing his emergency back-up carabiner … and bought her untangled.

It went pretty nicely for me, although I used to be very drained by the tip.

From right here in good climate it regarded a straightforward up-and-over.

Not so. It appeared to take endlessly to succeed in Windy Go (Paso de Viento).

However the astonishing first vista on to the Southern Patagonian Ice Discipline was the spotlight of all the hike.

Although a bit windy, I stayed fairly some time on the high. I attempted to recall any mountain climbing vista that impressed me extra. Anyplace.

Journey 2 Stroll compares this with the Paso John Gardner trying on to Glacier Gray in Paine. I concur that Windy Go is much more spectacular.

From the go it’s a protracted however comparatively straightforward descent all the way down to the moraine wall. There’s no actual path, however you’ll be able to’t get misplaced.

I made a decision to remain on the assigned bleak Paso del Viento Refuge and Campground as I wasn’t certain I may discover higher safety from the wind wherever else.

But regardless of appearances, they’re nearly zero drawback for me now. I’ve bought them found out. I put on the over-sized very broad sneakers (for the bunions). Apply petroleum jelly every morning. And put on neoprene booties as an alternative of socks on moist trails like these.

Right here’s my tent website chosen for wind safety.

Since I used to be carrying a climbing harness, I used it as a tie-down, as nicely.

Journey 2 Stroll calculated 3055 ft ascent and 2214 ft descent on the day. Solely 7.eight miles, however sluggish. Robust. And with PLENTY of picture stops.

Drained, I fell asleep by chance after dinner and wine. And due to this fact saved my meals within the tent.

No mice this night time.
