bit of rock climbing


Hey am in the argentinian lake district staying in a town called bariloche. Did a 12 hr hike yesterday if you can call it that more hard core mountaineering scrabbling on scree with a 1000m drop below you free climbing over rock faces and walking / sliding down snow fields, fjording rivers. We climbed a mountain called Cerro Cathedral ( catherdral mountain) over looking the Punta del condor ( place of the condors) And we did in deed have condors circling us as we climbed. It was probably the best hike i have ever done in my life. You could see for miles over the andes and i once had a video when i was a kid called flight of the condor so it was quite special to see these huge birds flighing so close to us to check us out waiting for us to make a mistake so they could get an easy feed!!!!!

here are a few pics unfortunately my camera has does something funny think bad memory card so will have to get a new one, want to show you anyway. love sus xxxxx
