This is an excellent crack route with lots of quality hand jamming. The crux is a thin corner on pitch 6 which has not yet been freed due to icy cracks. The first 8 pitches are sustained 5.10 cracks linked together with a 5.9 black dike traverse between crack systems. The route then joins the Austrian Ridge for 300m to the summit.See the American Alpine Journal 2008 for Jesse's description....[more] Browse More Classics in International

While the contributions are very much appreciated, there's no hierarchy, if Patagonia is the parent there needs to be children before the routes are posted - ideally it should be as follows:
Patagonia > Massif > Peak > Route.
