Caro North discovers new climbing in Patagonia's Minialaska

di

The video of Caro North and her discovery of Minialaska, a new rock climbing area in Patagonia.

They call it Minialaska, the small valley in Argentina renowned amongst skiers for its abundant powder. Now though the valley promises to become known among climbers, too, thanks in part Caro North. After having climbed during the austral summer in the famous Frey region, the Swisswoman decided to check out Minialaska.

Two hours later she remained dumbfounded as she laid eyes on a practically untouched granite paradise. "I couldn’t believe it, since it’s hardly possible nowadays to find valleys like these with so many unclimbed routes in Europe." said the 27-year-old. "There was just one line, dating back to 1993, on one of the many rock stacks, the rest of the terrain was unclimbed." With the help of her friends North established 55 new routes.
