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.

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.
