First Free Ascents and Record Solo Speed Ascents in Patagonia:

The weather must be good because the boys are really ripping it up down there.

Dean Potter climbed the Supercouloir, Solo on Fitzroy in 6 hours. Potter also climbed the Compressor Route, Solo in 11 hours.

Alex and Thomas Huber did the First Free Ascent of the Compressor Route on Cerre Torre!!

Sean "Stanley" Leary from Yosemite sent the Bonnington Route on Middle Tower of Paine, ALL FREE. His partner ZAK possibly freed it as well.

Steve Schneider climbed the Monzino Route on the North Tower of Paine in 71 minutes (Previous record time was 90 minutes, by Hans Florine).

Hopefully the weather will hold.....Keep Ripping it up guys!!!
