Publisher Description

Patagonia is a strange and terrifying place, a vast tract of land shared by Argentina and Chile where the violent weather spawned over the southern Pacific charges through the Andes with gale-force winds, roaring clouds, and stinging snow. In seven expeditions to this windswept edge of the Southern Hemisphere, Gregory Crouch has braved weather, gravity, fear, and doubt to try himself in the alpine crucible of Patagonia.

Author Biography

Gregory Crouch has made many climbing expedition on four continents, most notably in Alaska and Patagonia and his work has appeared in National Geographic, Islands, Climbing and other magazines.

Review

"An otherworldly range of mountains exists in Patagonia, at the southern end of the Americas. It is a sublime range, where ice and granite soar with a dancer's grace. From the mountains' feet tumble glaciers and dark forests of beech. The summits float in the southern sky, impossibly remote. Climbers who gaze upon these wonders ache to unlock their secrets. Hard, steep, massive, these might be our planet's most perfect mountains." --from Enduring Patagonia
