A corda norte-americana, composta por Alex Honnold e Colin Haley, conseguiu realizar a ascensão de três agulhas do maciço de Fitz Roy durante um único dia. Especificamente, os norte-americanos escalaram a “Aguja Guillaumet”, “Aguja Mermoz” e “Aguja Val Biois”.
De acordo com informações disponibilizadas em redes sociais, os seus planos dos escaladores norte-americanos incluíam terminar de escalar o Fitz Roy, mas as condições não o permitiam.
A dupla pretendia realizar a travessia “Care Bear”, mas havia muito gelo nas fissuras e paredes, além de neve nas bordas. A dupla resolveu então escalar as agulhas citadas.

A few photos from a fun day in the mountains on Saturday with @alexhonnold. We had hoped to climb the Care Bear Traverse with day packs, but already on the second pitch of the Brenner Ridge there were signs (a very icy corner) that our original plan likely wouldn’t come to fruition. Even after a few days with no precipitation, there was still a lot of ice in cracks, verglas on face holds, and snow on ledges. Most all pitches are still totally climbable in such conditions, but it’s much slower than in dry conditions, and thus difficult to cover a lot of terrain quickly. After climbing Aguja Guillaumet and Aguja Mermoz, it was pretty clear that climbing Chaltén was not in the cards. We decided to continue nonetheless, and at least tick the rarely-climbed Aguja Val Biois. It was a much smaller traverse than we had envisioned, but in any case, climbing three Patagonian spires between sunrise and sunset is a great day! We certainly feel much more warmed up now, so hopefully we’ll get more opportunities in the next weeks for mountain climbing. @patagonia_climb @petzl_official @scarpaspa @totemmt
