The Torre Traverse (Cerro Standhardt, Punta Herron, Torre Egger, and Cerro Torre). From January 21-24, 2008, Rolando Garibotti and Colin Haley made a phenomenal first enchainment of these towers in a continuous alpine-style push, climbing from north to south in a four-day roundtrip. The Torre Traverse had been coveted by leading Patagonian climbers for nearly 20 years. See Garibotti's feature earlier in this Journal.
