“An expedition into
the epicentre of the elements,” commented Stefan Glowacz
and Robert Jasper, as they described their successful
first ascent of the North Pillar of the Cerro Murallón,
a massif on the remote Patagonian inland icecap. Stefan
Glowacz confirmed their summit via satellite-phone.
They encountered heavy snowstorms on their
route in on the Patagonia icecap. It took weeks for Stefan Glowacz and Robert
Jasper just to reach Cerro Murallón. Then, after spending further days in an
ice cave at the base of the mountain, the two climbed continuous from the 3rd
to the 4th of December. They managed to climb the approx. 1100 meters of steep
ice and rock in 26 hours. They are suggesting the degree of difficulty of
M8/7+. Glowacz commented that the roped climbing at night was especially
difficult. Glowacz and Jasper named the route “The Lost World”.
No specific route details are yet available.
