Johannesburg Monthly Meeting
Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 19:00

 

Monte Fitz Roy (also known as Cerro ChalténCerro Fitz Roy, or simply Mount Fitz Roy) is a mountain located near El Chaltén village, in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field in Patagonia, on the border between Argentina and Chile

First up is that Hector Pringle , Gosia Lipinska and Julia Wakeling summited Fitzroy on Saturday night and are down safe and partying tonight.  No mean feat let me tell.  This place is breaking people every day as it extremely hot and the whole place is falling apart with rock and ice fall all the time.  The weather has been spectacular with no wind!  And is set to continue almost as good the whole time we are here.
