“We worked super hard shuttling our food and gear up onto the ice field,” said Fisher. “Our luck was in the right place this time and we got up high with a weather window to climb two unclimbed peaks.”

They climbed Cerro Pantagruel (2,411m) up their new route Brisa Sauve M6 70* C1 350m on Feb. 10.

They also climbed Peak 2252 which they called Cerro Fantasma “because it doesn’t actually show up on the map.”

“Our route up the Southwest Face went at AI4 350m on Feb. 11.”
