Cerro Almirante Nieto, new route in Torres del Paine park, Patagonia

di

Felipe Bishara and Christian Barra Muñoz have established a new route up the hitherto unclimbed SE Face of Cerro Almirante Nieto, Torries del Paine, Patagonia.

On 12 August 2018 a new route was completed up Cerro Almirante Nieto in the Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia by 27-year-old Felipe Bishara and 30-year-old Christian Barra Muñoz.

The two Chielan climbers, who work as climbing and trekking guides in the park, established the new route up the virgin SE Face of Cerro Almirante Nieto by following a rightwards trending ramp for 10 pitches before dealing with steep mixed terrain and unconsolidated snow for another 8 pitches. The summit was reached at 2am after having breached terrain to 90°. They returned to the base of the mountain at 7 in the morning, 29 hours after having set off and required a further 2.5 hours to return to the car and complete their round-trip.

The new 1300m route is called Línea de Libertad and is dedicated to the memory of the late Cristobal Bizzarri.

Desde las 2am del dia 12 de Agosto comenzamos junto a @christianbarramunoz el ascenso del monte Almirante Nieto en el Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, una linea que propone varios largos con secciones de hielo entre 75° y pasadas de 90°. La rampa inicial fueron 10 largos hasta llegar a la zona alta de esta pirámide, desde aquí hicimos cerca de 8 largos mas por terreno mixto con nieve poco cohesionada. Los últimos 250 mts de pared los hicimos en simultáneo hasta llegar al filo que te lleva a la cumbre. Nos alcanzó la noche con vientos de 80km x hr y nevazones a ratos fuertes lo que dificulto la navegación en montaña ya que este viento no tiene origen definido, venía con la misma fuerza por todos lados. Finalmente a las 7am y tras 29 horas tocamos tierra firme y a las 31.5 horas de comenzada la aventura llegamos a nuestro preciado vehículo. Primer ascenso por esta cara, dedicado a @cristobalbizzarri !! Christian eres un grande, GRACIAS! Patagonia siempre hermosa! @monkeytripexpediciones @karunworld @ong_sinhuella @lineasdelibertad
