Cerro Torre: the other tra­verse

Vertical (English) - - Editorial -

Rolando Gari­botti and Colin Ha­ley had al­ready dumb­founded the moun­taineer­ing world in 2008 with their north-south tra­verse of the Torre chain. Di­a­bol­i­cal Colin Ha­ley, ac­com­pa­nied by Marc-An­dré Le­clerc, suc­ceeded the south-north tra­verse, start­ing with the Rag­niRoute on Cerro Torre. Then came Torre Eg­ger via Ve­nasAzules and the Amer­i­canRoute, Punta Heron via the south face, then a few new pitches to reach El Cara­col and Cerro Stand­hardt. A three-day cavalcade on some of the world’s most unso­cia­ble rock faces. Photo: Damien To­masi.
