The main objective of the expedition is to attempt a new free route on Cerro Catedral in Torres del Paine. This 1000m beauty is reputed to have some of the best granite in the area with countless possibilities for new lines. Im sure we're to find some great adventure up here. The route

Here is a video of an expedition who did the first ascent of the Cerro Catedral. They named the line la Escoba de Dios which translates to ‘The broom of God’.

We hope to free climb this line keeping our style and choices as impeccable as possible. That is, as free as can be, ground up, capsule style.
