Aleta de Tiburón, Paine Group. After failing to climb Fitz Roy in early February, on February 28 Swedes Patrick Lind, Magnus Nilson and Americans Lorna Corson and 1 climbed the beautiful Aleta de Tiburón above the Valle del Francés by a crack system on its southwest side (III-IV, 5.8). We descended the route in 9 or 10 rappels after down-climbing the south ridge for about 500 feet.
