La Torcida

First ascent: Tom Ehrig, Felix Getzlaff, Lutz Zybell (GER), 15.01.2018 to Filo Sur
By: Tom Ehrig
Area: Patagonia, Group: Fitz Roy, Peak: Aguja Val Biois, Height: 2650 m, Country: Argentina, Region: Patagonia

An enjoyable climb on mostly solid rock. The first half offers good crack climbing (and a stellar p5) for half a day and from the top of the pillar (p6) it is easy to rap to the Col del Bloque Empotrada approach and down this. The upper part provides more strenuous crack climbing (mostly fingers) and is worth repeating (especially if the weather isn't good enough for bigger adventures). Sheltered from the west winds.
