A FitzRoy (solo) video

Got this link through the Patagonia website, showing an impressive solo ascent of Aguja Guillaumet in the beautiful Fitzroy group in Patagonia by Colin Haley wearing a helmet camera. This unique perspective makes for a high adrenaline ten minute movie where you need to remember to breathe once in a while… Haley makes the climb seem so easy while it is definitely an engaged one, especially when climbing solo! The only issue with the helmet camera is that it often kills the vertical perspective, in that it is difficult to assess the slope at times.

  1. Unbelievable. “Engaged” is the right word. You have to be pretty nuts to solo an extreme mixed climb like that. Thanks for the link!
