The Amy Route: Aguja Guillaumet
After five months of good times in a far off land, my friend Tad finally arrived to El Bolson, Argentina. We cruised out to the farm where I had been working and settled in for a few days. A week later, food and gas taken care of, we departed for El Chalten and the Fitz Roy Range. Unbelievably, we arrived just in time to catch a three day weather window. So we hopped in a taxi for the Rio Electrico and made camp beneath the puma of granite, Aguja Guillaumet. Our plan was to carry over our gear to Paso Superior for an attempt on Aguja Poincenot later in the week. And on the way over, climb the Amy Route on Aguja Guillaumet.

Somehow, we managed to summit our first peak not three days after arriving in El Chalten. Needless to say, we were jazzin hard all the way down to town. What a joy to combine so many technical aspects of climbing in this dream of a setting. I was so impressed with the beauty and quality of rock on the route. We felt handed a gift.
