Video: Climbing Cerro Torre's Classic Ice Wall


What's it like to climb Cerro Torre? This six-minute film gives a nice glimpse. John Long does voiceover, playing the part of Jess Roskelley, in this film of Cerro Torre's west face. Roskelley and Ben Erdmann climbed the spectacular ice flutes and tunnels of the Ragni Route (Cerro Torre's original route) and then endured the long march out the Marconi Glacier and Rio Electrico valley, for the full Patagonian experience.
