February 2014, Jonny Simms and Tony Richardson are on a roll in Patagonia, they have climbed another new route. The pair climbed El Busca Jesus in late January.
Jonny Simms and Tony Richardson climbed a variation to the 1968 route Guillot-Conqueugniot, 250 m, 70 degrees, on Aguja Guillaumet’s east face. The original route was climbed after a failed attempt on Fitz Roy’s east pillar, it was the first ascent of Aguja Guillaumet.
The Canadian alpinists climbed their 110 m, AI4, variation after spotting the stunning line from below, they dubbed the route the Richard-Simmons. It climbs two stunning pitches, both are ice-filled corners, and exits on the summit snowfield, avoiding the often-crowded bottleneck of the Comesana-Fonrouge.
