Description:Climbing in superb positions up the most imposing line on the wall. The first ascent was completed in true Patagonian conditions; gale force winds, torrential rain and hail.
Description:Start about 8m R of Sahara, between the overhanging, L-facing corner and the giant boulder at the foot of the cliff. 1) 46m Steep climbing up the juggy buttress and over the overlap leads to the line which is followed to the first dyke. Step R and follow the next crack until it is possible to go back L to the original crack. Follow crack to SHB at second dyke. 2) 25m Go straight up above the belay, following the line a little L until it peters out. A tricky move leads to the foot of the distinctive V-slot which is a landmark on the face. Go up slot until a dramatic traverse can be made to the R arete 3) 35m Jugs to the top. This pitch can be eliminated by abseiling (slings - 45m) from just below and right of P2 belay - three stars.
