Cerro Torre East Face, 2019 Matteo Della Bordella and Matteo Pasquetto attempt
The video of Matteo Della Bordella and Matteo Pasquetto attempting the east face of Cerro Torre (Patagonia) up the British Diedre route.
Precisely a year ago Matteo Della Bordella and Matteo Pasquetto attempted the east face of Cerro Torre, via a line "so beautiful, elegant and difficult that it’s difficult to imagine anything better, namely the striking corner the righthand side of the face, also known as British Diedre."
About 80m before reaching the end of this legendary corner - attempted between 1980 and 1981 by Philip Burke and Tom Proctor - Della Bordella and Pasquetto were forced to retreat, but the Italians are currently back in Patagonia to try this route again. They are joined by Matteo Bernasconi who last year had injured his knee shortly before departure.
