With ines and Thomas on the summit! I could not have had a better team! However, our success was quickly dampened by rock fall hitting the portaledges that night while we were asleep, tearing Ines and my ledge open and narrowly missing us. Shaken yet still determined to finish the route, Ines and I returned to work on free climbing the lower pitches.
Discovering that especially in warm weather this face is quite exposed to both ice and rockfall for the top of the peak - which is comprised of loose blocks held together by ice.
Sending the second pitch of our free variation. The climbing on Riders on the storm is demanding varied, from delicate face climbing with poor protection to off widths entire filled with ice. Ines, Thomas and I battled on, and in ever deteriorating weather managed to free all but two pitches of the original route and the most difficult two of their new variant. However, unfortunately in the last ten days of our time in Patagonia we were hit by extremely bad weather more typical for Patagonia With winds over km and snowfalls down to m, the entire route became plastered in snow and we ended up having to retrieve our gear in the few days where the storm abated slightly.
Getting no further chance to climb. Ines on pitch 23, 7c, Riders on the Storm. Really enjoyed this route. A few hards moves but always preceded by a decent rest.

Good fun. Start moves were hard! What an exposed route, seconding is a scary as and brilliant as leading. Especially with Callan placing the runners. Super pleased with this one!

Totally amazing pitch! Found the first move to get established on the wall the hardest. Got ridiculously hot and pumped. Very intimidating! Possibly a less faff alternative to dream of white horses. Great position, climbed above scary waves. Cut it close with the tides! Accidentally went up the ramp for the E1 Big C , then traversed higher up.
Need to return and do it properly. Awesome lead by vic, had to rest at the crux as was pumped taking gear out. Love to go back and lead it with Vic. Good lead by Mark, nice one with Trickett. Amazing route - we abbed in as the down climb seemed sketchy and polished.
Did it all in one pitch, definitely could have done with more extenders. Was a bit intimidated by it standing at the start, but the holds appear if you keep the faith!

Epic route, had a nightmare with gear popping on the traverse, kept it together to finish, probably left Stuart on second with a scarier climb than leading. Felt sketch when half the lead gear fell out. Amazing traverse out across the sea on huge flakes with roym.

Superb climbing. Only one technical move, using the undercling to find the hold up to the flake.
Placed 15 runners and ran out of quickdraws - was probably overdoing it a bit, but I needed the placement practice! I guess Eugenie wasn't too impressed with the standard line. After the crux she dropped back down slightly rather than taking the rising traverse and traversed directly into the corner via sharp crimps, thin foot work and no gear turning a fun HVS into what felt a serious E1. She then went on to climb the corner Pugwash before exiting left via the correct groove. Two routes for the price of one? Went slightly off route somewhere and ended up at the bottom of Pugwash for a 2-for-1 experience.
Very disappointing. Amazing route with tons of atmosphere. Glad we sought it out with Amy Ellie. Fantastic adventure with Katie P.

Steve won the toss on this one but seconding was great fun, amazing route with good holds but not easy. Wow, what a route, so pleased to get it done after a couple of years of wanting to. I was expecting bigger jugs.. So cool though with danieleaston. Scrambled down. Stayed as low as I could. Found it quite hard and pumpy for HVS with a few unprotected and continuous sections of V1-ish moves with foot smears and shoulder presses. But the sight of jellyfish in the sea kept me on the climb did not want to fall in. Vince later pointed out I went too low, making it harder than HVS he tried my way and didn't want to do it.
That would explain a lot. What a glorious climb though. Adventurous, fun. Bit of a tricky down climb to the belay point. The traverse is pretty cool, the vertical section was quite straight forward. Fun route, great experience traversing above the waves as the tide came in, very atmospheric. Exciting route and amazing position, but I found this quite scary.
It was my first traverse and I faffed around for ages trying to place excessive? Rope drag and a questionable choice of line ensued. Many thanks to Paul for his patience. Great position and adventure to locate and ab in. I ascended the route too soon which probably made it a grade or two easier, so will have to return.
Cracking route with bags of exposure and good holds throughout. A good start to the weekend! Best HVS I've ever done. Proper voyage. Felt bold but great route!
What a route! Started on the higher, smaller ledge by mistake because I can't read the guidebook properly Steep rock and big and sharp! Only my second lead HVS, and a fantastic route! What a great route. Massive swell. Surely scarier to second than to lead. We may have strayed up too high too soon but if anything this added difficulty.
Awesome climb! Great move on the undercling!!
Tom did great to second with Tom Barter. Small hold broke off right at the start. Holds very sharp! My favourite trad route so far, despite losing an offset fumbling around after my first bit of gear popped out! Absolutely epic. Phenomenal route. Great positions, some tough moves and sustained.
Rests are available if you're smart. Downclimb onto the ledge was okay if slightly polished. Very hot day. Great lead. I found the undercut move tricky. Finally got to this. Wasn't disappointed.
