‘Wall of Paine’- The First ascent of a Big Wall Climb up the South East Face of the South Tower of Paine. (Summit eluded)
British Climbers Mike ‘Twid’ Turner, Jerry Gore, Calum Muskett and French cameraman Raphael Jochaud climbed to the top of the Big Wall of the SE Face of the South Tower (tallest of the 3 famous Towers of Paine). Certainly the last great problem of the Patagonian region of Torres Del Paine. Unfortunately, after climbing 900m to their high point at the top of the wall, on their final day a ferocious storm (150kmph winds) prevented the team from standing on the elusive summit, only a 100m of easy mixed climbing away.
