Description:

Come out to hear about the first ascent of Volcan Aguilera!

After several attemps since the mid-1980's Camilo Rada's team decided to approach the mountain in a somewhat counter intuitive way that would involve a much longer approach through previously unclimbed passes. After finding their own route through the seracs, bergschrunds, and ice mushrooms the team successfully made the first ascent of one of Patagonia's most remote peaks. They went on to climb 4 other virgin peaks on the way back. Join us Wednesday March 11th to find out more about this impressive trip! Until then check out these pictures and get stoked :)
