Patagonia: Matteo Della Bordella and David Bacci climb Aguja Rafael Juarez

by

Italian mountaineers Matteo Della Bordella and David Bacci have climbed Aguja Rafael Juarez in Patagonia via the classic route Corallo. This is their first summit this season and comes before attempting the east face of Cerro Torre with Matteo De Zaiacomo.

Two days ago Matteo Della Bordella and David Bacci made best use of their first weather window in Patagonia by repeating Corallo, a beautiful climb established by Fabio Leoni and Ermanno Salvaterra on 12 February 1994 in the center of the west face of Aguja Rafael Juarez in the Fitz Roy massif.

The route provides "500 meters of perfect climbing" past a characteristic 100m corner, and has served to reunite with the rough Patagonian granite; the two Ragni di Lecco climbers are in fact in El Chalten to complete the famous British Diedre route on the east face of Cerro Torre.

They are in Patagonia with Matteo De Zaiacomo, the third member of the small expedition, who unfortunately had to miss out on the Aguja Rafael Juarez ascent due to health problems. Now that all three are on fine form they will focus on their primary objective.
