Riders on the Storm Torres del Paine, Mayan Smith-Gobat and Ines Papert in Patagonia videos
Four videos documenting the repeat of Riders on the Storm on the Central Tower of the Torres del Paine in Patagonia, carried out by Mayan Smith-Gobat, Ines Papert and accompanied by Thomas Senf.
At the start of February 2016 New Zealand's Mayan Smith-Gobat and Germany's Ines Papert repeated Riders on the Storm, the climb up the East Face of the Central Tower of the Torres del Paine in Patagonia, established 25 years ago by Wolfgang Güllich, Kurt Albert, Bernd Arnold, Norbert Bätz and Peter Dittrich. As reported, Smith-Gobat and Papert established some new variation pitches in the hope of achieving the first free ascent. Here are four videos documenting the efforts, filmed by photographer Thomas Senf.
