Our trek through #parquepatagonia ended at a basecamp below the stunning Cerro Colorado. Despite high winds and the challenging alpine desert environment (and even a freak thunderstorm!), students put all their wilderness and climbing skills to use to climb the beautiful geometric basalt. One team even managed a successful ascent of “The Magic Spatula” (IV 5.11), sending the route in good style and descending in a wild rainstorm for an authentic Patagonia adventure experience.
