An expedition with the objective of new routes on rock in the Fitzroy and Cerro Torre massifs. The cold and snowy conditions which prevailed meant a change of objectives to mixed and ice routes. An attempt on Exocet on Cerro Stanhardt was aborted because of falling ice due to the warm conditions. While passing the time bouldering during bad weather Peter Graham injured his knee which put him out of action for a few days. Their first success was a repeat of Super Domo, a new route on Dome Blanco, which gave 10 pitches of excellent mixed climbing. An attempt on Supercanaletta on Fitzroy failed in violent winds, but was followed by a successful ascent of Exocet in difficult conditions. A final weather window just gave them time for another attempt on Fitzroy by Mate, Porro y Todo lo Demas, which yielded to a three day assault. The team had summited three peaks by good routes, but not unfortunately the hoped for first ascents.
