South America, Argentine—Chilean Patagonia, Aleta De Tiburón, Paine Group

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.
