Mate (with accent on the e). Its an Argentinian obsession and tastes absolutely foul.
It's pronounced MA-te with an accent on the A.
It's a bitter tea drink typical of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay and is the drink of choice in Patagonia.
It has a great caffeine kick and is rather addictive.
Adam is good guy, him and his buddies walked up from camp 4 especially to help me get all my shit down from the base of a wall in yosemite after i injured myself in a fall.
I hope he gets well soon.
Sobering ending to the film. Man those guys are kicking ass though, great watch.

I hope he gets well soon....although i would love all nurses to be as attractive as the one at the end of the film :)
Looks like a lovely route, liked watching it a lot. Nasty ending.
Climbed on Naranjo this summer for a week. A superb cliff with outstanding climbing on excellent rock. The refuge is great and there are routes from VS upwards between 3 and 19 pitches long. The approach from the refuge takes between 15 min and 1 hr depending on which face you climb on and the descent from the summit to the refuge is about an hour. Amazingly, very few British climbers go there.
fantastic video. Really well shot. Awesome looking route too.
hope he has a fast recovery
