El Mocho, new route, Dulce de Leche
Argentina, Chaltén Massif
At the end of our visit to Patagonia, Tadej Kriselj and I used a short window of good weather to climb a new route on El Mocho. At first, we followed the approximate line of the Elorza-Moises attempt, then followed splitter cracks of all sizes to the top. We named our route Dulce de Leche (400m, 5.11+). We set a personal record of eating 9kg each of this creamy heaven in the six weeks that we were in El Chaltén.
