Inspired by the insistence of the others we also started to work harder routes, meaning that we tried a route several times up to the moment we were able to climb it without falling. Antoine the climber and Tchen the photograph. Apart from small showers we stayed dry, the wind was more than bearable, the temperatures were agreeable, we had a swim in the river Chubut every day, sat down by the fire at night sharing our exploits of the day. We finally again felt mentally prepared for a harsher environment and during our stay the weather situation had improved in Patagonia, nothing could contain us now from heading to El Chalten!

With my mom, we never compromise when it comes to food. When our options are limited with, for example; backpacking around Patagonia, or camping in the car… the cousine stays the same! Neither of us likes the bagged premade soups or canned food. We always plan ahead and enjoy our meals, just as we were at home. The camp that we had set up, was simple. A Quechua tent, that lasted throughout our last 10 years of family expeditions, was put behind our car, so were saved from the strong Patagonian winds.
Gualjaina: a paradise in the desert - Gualjaina, Patagonia, Argentina.
I remember sleeping for over 13 hours the first night! Oh, the dreams!
Flowing from one scenario to another, over the whole night to the sounds of river and wind! Nobody was in a hurry. We have light and we climb. Our days were full of climbing, swimming in the river and hanging out with others. Our schedule was non-existing, and we moved by the sun, went to bed when the first stars started to rise! We saved the climb on Piedra Parada for our last day. No plan.
We knew some other Brazilians and a German couple was doing the route as well, called Sueno Lento. Which translates from Spanish to Slow Dream. We started around 11, successfully avoided the hot sun by staying in the shadow, enjoying the views from a big rock. The timings were great since the first ascent was just 3 pitches above us and the ones who came after, started when we were already half way up. Each pitch had something different to offer us, my mom had always preferred chimneys and roofs, I had always been a bigger fan of cracks and slab.
