Crazy drumming event at the Konex

Amazing space. Sooo argentinian. Industrial and raw, but ooozing cool.

Last minute playing in BsAs

Last minute shopping - including a bespoke dashing leather jacket for Beard. Playing the arcades, Cafe Tortoni, and the final assault on La Cabrera (Round 6!) rounded off an incredible 2 weeks. I've never had a holiday waking up so early, drinking so little or walking so much! Amazing fun all round, and gutted to see our last visitors head home.

Homeward bound...

Bodies intact, but properly exhausted, we returned to BsAs via a LONG delay in El Calafate airport... enough to make you go mad by the looks of things!

Day 4. Final day.

Smelling as fresh as (rotten) daisies, and having brushed the ice off the tent... we headed out early for our final day walking. Glaciers, lakes, mountains and miradors. What more could a man want?

Day 3. Camp Italiano - Britannico and back again.

The good weather returned, and we headed out early to the ampitheatre in the french valley between all the glaciers and mountains. Depite Edel & I insisting on pegging it up to the final mirador - through snow and rocks - and without a path (we never quite made it!) It was a full on fantastic day in the great outdoors.

Day 2. All change...

Sure enough, despite the amazing sunrise, the weather did turn. With fully laden packs, the winds arrived, and the rain persisted for most of the day... not happy campers I can tell you!

The first leg of the infamous W in Torres Del Paine

We'd been braced for howling winds and torrential rain... but were blessed with an amazing day and a great view of the Torres from the outset. Surely this was only a gentle introduction as to what was to come...

Mount Fitzroy walk

A fantastic day, through woods, desert, river plains and a LONG uphill climb at the end!

Cerro Torre. Our first 20K+ walk... and certainly not our last!

After a briefing in the National Park office, we 'checked in' - Dumped our bags - and headed off on the first of our walks in El Chalten. As ever, simply stunning scenery. SO much so that Ed just had to take a dip in the iceberg ridden lake at the end...
