Tim confronts New Economic Measures

Average Rating = 2.67/5 Tim confronts New Economic Measures

I thought I'd better include a picture of roped climbing for the La Barrosa area, just to compensate for all the bouldering shots which are there now. Here's Tim on a 3 bolt 5.10b called Nuevas Medidas Econůmicos (New Economic Measures) named after the painful and confusing governmental policies adopted as the Argentine economy slowly spiraled into the toilet.

Mariano checking to see if his shoe's tied

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Mariano checking to see if his shoe's tied

The easiest route at Playa Grande is this 5.10c, which is nice for warming up because it actually has a few good holds. Here Mariano Maceri checks his footwork before entering the crux, while Gaby gets a neck tweak down below.

Mariano warms up on V0 Pump Love

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Mariano warms up on V0 Pump Love

I had to include a shot of resident hardman Mariano Maceri for the La Barrosa record and this looked like the nicest one. This long V0 traverse on big sloppers (the boulder continues for another 5 meters around the corner) is just the thing to get those arms inflated before taking on some of the harder problems. That's Balcarce, birthplace to 5-time world champion race car driver Juan Manuel Fangio, in the background.

Tim climbs the wall near Playa Grande

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Tim climbs the wall near Playa Grande

This 85 degree retaining wall is home to a about a dozen finger tweaking face climbs ranging from 5.10c to 5.12a in difficulty. The route Tim's on was given an Argentine rating of 6a+, although it would check in at a solid 5.10d by US standards. When you get tired of crimping, you can go play on the jugs of the nearby, overhanging boulder.

What we did on our summer vacation

Average Rating = 3.20/5 What we did on our summer vacation

Hidden away in the trees above Lago Lacar, up and to the right of La Escuelita, is a 25 meter wall which holds three excellent sport routes: a 10a, an 11a and an 11c (from left to right). Here Mariano Maceri starts up the 11c, clipping the first of 10 bolts, while Gabriela Cendoya feeds him the rope.

Just the profile pic

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Just the profile pic

Tim and Cecilia on top of La Movidiza, in Tandil. Yes there's climbing here, maybe 15 to 20 routes on sharp granite, but if you want the real stuff, head to Balcarce.

Gaby spots Tim on Techo Clasico

Average Rating = 2.75/5 Gaby spots Tim on Techo Clasico

All this V-rating still confuses me, but Techo Clasico is probably something like V4. The problem actual starts down and right (look for chalk) outside the frame of the photo and involves about 5 meters of upside down climbing, mostly on jugs. Here Tim is in the crux, which involves a few smaller holds followed by a powerful toss to a huge jug and an easy top out.

Michi on El Huevo

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Michi on El Huevo

If you look down and right you can see Michi's toes sticking out of his shoes. But that won't stop him from dialing the dicey V5 footwork required to complete El Huevo. That's Mariano Maceri winning an oscar in the role of spotter.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Baby Boom Three

The last of three photos of Mar del Plata's Juancho crusing up Baby Boom. Here he gets ready for the crux move, which is a heel hook out right and a strong reach.
