Despite tricky terrain plus a whole barrage of complications, from COVID to the loss of a dear friend days before the start – not to mention both athletes coming back after serious injury – Fernanda and Kaytlyn hammered the route.
“There were so many crevasses. Running around them would take so long. So, we just decided to go fast and jump. We jumped like a thousand crevasses. It was like, three steps then jump.”
Crevasses notwithstanding, the route passes truly breathtaking scenery and some of the greatest and most recognisable peaks on the planet, including the Fitzroy, Cerro Torre and Torre Egger.
