January 2010 new route - Torres del Paine Central Tower
24 February 2011
From Dec, 2009 to Jan, 2010, Austrian climbers Hansjörg Auer and Much Mayr were based at Torres del Paine, focusing a great cracks system on east wall of Central Tower. As the system was unfortunately discontinued, they had to place their line more to the right and climbed a strenuous itineray, in hard weather conditions, and in haevy dangers due to blocks of ice and rocks fall.
The duo onsighted on extremely severe weather a 7b pitch and reached the col between the North and Central tower. Waiting for Godot, the name of the new route. (Torres del Paine - Central Tower East Face - 750m; 7b/M6)
