Video Patagonia 2019: Lukas Hinterberger, Nicolas Hojac, Stephan Siegrist searching for unclimbed peaks
The video of the Swiss expedition comprised of Lukas Hinterberger, Nicolas Hojac, Stephan Siegrist to Patagonia in November 2019. The alpinists made the first ascent of the NE Face of Cerro Cachet via Homenaje a los amigos perdidos, named in memory of David Lama, Ueli Steck and Julian Zanker.
Towards the end of 2019 the Swiss mountaineers Lukas Hinterberger, Nicolas Hojac and Stephan Siegrist travelled to Northern Patagonia where they completed a rare ascent of Cerro Largo (2799m) before breaching the virgin northeast face of Cerro Cachet. The 2700m peak had only been climbed once previously, in 1971 by a team of climbers from New Zealand, and the new Swiss route Homenaje a los amigos perdidos was dedicated to three friends who died prematurely, namely David Lama, Ueli Steck and Julian Zanker.
