Petzl RocTrip Patagonia 2, 13 kbPetzl have announced this years RocTrip. For 2012 they are heading to the La Buitrera Canyon, Piedra Parada, located in the Chubut Valley in the Patagonia region of southern Argentina.

Whilst climbing was already established here, last March Petzl sent 30 climbers out to the area where they joined local climbers and established over 200 new routes. The climbing is on red volcanic rock with excellent friction and lots of pockets; there are single and multi-pitch sport routes from 5 to 8's.
