Lago de Los Tres Winter Camp – Fitzroy, Cerro Torre. El Chalten

Time to strap on the backpack…. It’s -10C as I lie in the dark, waiting for the next 100 km/h gust. Each one worse than the last. Then it hits… A surge of adrenaline courses through my body as the tent is flattened against my entire body once again… I have been unable to stake out the tent on the hard rocky ground, and it feels like I might get blown off the mountain.
