Tom Ballard: Cerro Torre II

That's been our problem, the wind. Patience... Waiting for 'weather windows' down in the 'mini Cham' of El Chalten is too good a thing really.

Patience is a Virtue

 You can go for a beer or a coffee and catch up on social media before heading to the crags or bountiful boulders. I started out my climbing 'career' way back when I was a nipper, bouldering. I haven't done much bouldering in the last few years.

Not since I spent an Autumn bouldering in Ticino in 2011. Patience is the greatest skill an Alpinist needs. Having finished four books and re-watched half my film collection its time to slip on my rock shoes and dip my hands into the chalkbag once again.
