Comments: Dear Mountainproject,

I am saddened that you censored Eric's playful simile from his route description. I believe that his description was well within the Mountainproject guidelines for appropriate language and attitude. While I understand the site trying to avoid PG-13 content, the people of this country have fought too hard to gain the right to freedom of speech for this sort of censorship to happen. What are we as Americans if we are not free? What do we have left when our freedom is taken ... more >>

Comments: Devin,

I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish with your interesting writing style, but it certainly made for a cruxy read! That aside, in the course of trying this route I didn't once leave gear in overnight.

Also, I appreciate your concern about sensitive areas. I put a lot of thought into wether or not to try this route, and ultimately decided that it was perfectly acceptable. First of all, the closest petroglyph to the base of this climb is about 40 feet away. On top of that, the r... more >>

Comments: I believe the solo speed record for the pioneer route is currently 3m30sec. Time starts at the beginning of the fourth class, ends at the summit. GET IT!

Comments: Some random beta...
I think the cheapest way to get to Puerto Natales (from the states) is to fly to Buenos aires (rather than Santiago) then fly to either Rio Gallegos or El Calafate, then 5 hrs or so in the bus to Natales. About 1100USD round trip. In Natales I would recommend staying at the Kaweskar hostel. Omar (who runs the place) is super cool, loves climbers (and speaks english if your a true gringo). Paine is incomprehensibly sick.

Comments: I didn't add this buttress because there are so many petroglyphs at the base. Many of the climbs here (not including this one thankfully) have petroglyphs near, or on their bases. It probably doesn't matter, but there really aren't many worthwhile- everyday routes here anyways. Just my thoughts.

Comments: Maybe its just me, but after a 3 hour, meandering drive from conway, I'm inclined to believe the the directions here were not quite right. Here are mine. I you follow them, I promise you will not get as lost as I did...

Take rt 26 towards West Paris, turn east onto 219. After 4.8 miles, turn left onto Tuell Hill Rd. After 1.6 miles take a left, continuing on Tuell Hill rd. After .9 miles, Tuell Hill rd. ends. Take a left on Reading. After 3.9/4 miles, there is a pullout on the left. Park here,... more >>

Comments: In Nov 09, there was a rats nest of crispy faded slings up there. If you plan on heading up, think about replacing the old webbing with some chains or rings.
