South America, Argentine-Chilean Patagonia, Aguja de la S and St. Exupéry

Aguja de la S and St. Exupéry. After their successful ascent on the fourth try on December 3, 1986 of the Franco-Argentine route on Fitzroy, Austrians Hans Bärnthaler and Ewald Lidl returned to the region in late 1987. (Their companions Ernst Konzett and Reinhard Sperger had also completed the same climb four days later.) In 1987, Bärnthaler and Lidl made two new routes: the east face of the Aguja de la S (400 meters, UIAA VI-) and the south ridge of St. Exupéry (800 meters, VI, A2). Details are not yet available.
