The routes

Vertical (English) - - Special Report -

From the early 1980s to the present day, open­ing a new route on Fitz Roy or mak­ing a gen­uine achieve­ment there meant go­ing down in his­tory. A his­tory steeped in the pi­o­neer­ing spirit, the tem­pest, the dreams and the night­mares of those who have al­ready rubbed shoul­ders with th­ese im­mense rock faces and their ter­ri­fy­ing man­i­fes­ta­tions of power. A few of th­ese ma­jor routes are still fresh in our mem­o­ries, either thanks to the story as­so­ci­ated with their open­ing or their place in a closed cir­cle of re­peated and ap­pre­ci­ated routes.
