British South Tower of Paine 1994

On finding their original objective snowed up, this team tackled the continually overhanging E face of Cuernos Norte (2400m). Despite large sections of disintegrating and exfoliating granite, in four weeks they achieved the first ascent of a 23-pitch 800m A3+ route, which they called 'A Fistful of Dollars' after the recently imposed climbing charge of $800.
