Lovely footage of an amazing place.

I'm usually all for some excitable, naval gazing Americans, but that was a bit too much even for me. He seems to be very surprised that it goes dark every day.

In my opinion, this is the best Friday night video I have ever seen. Something about the tone of MS's voice, the slightly ad hoc editing, the persistence of 10 years in Patagonia, the persistence of (bad) weather, the views of him and his mates on the granite summits which could have been boulder tops. Chapeau.
