Patagonia’s Fitz Traverse is extreme. Gnarly. Brutal. Lovely. Terrible. Gorgeous. Unattainable-seeming.
To traverse Cerro Fitz Roy and its six sister peaks suggests 13,000 toes of vertical attain in only 4 miles, with a great deal of technical climbing. It was to start with traversed by Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold in 2014. Now, it’s been performed solo.
Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, who lives in Patagonia, just turned 40, and like you do, made a decision to rejoice by finishing a person of the most hard climbing worries possible all by himself. Reportedly he did the entire detail with only rope, a penny whistle, and loads of birthday cake.
“Really great whistle acoustics on those peaks,” he reported.
Subsequent time you appear at the Fitz symbol on your Patagonia jacket, imagine a tiny figure, all by yourself, dangling from 1 of the peaks, striving to blow a penny whistle with a mouth total of cake.
