Weather Craps Out For Parnell and Kirkpatrick

Andy Kirkpatrick and Ian Parnell had intentions to attempt the first winter ascent of Torre Egger by Titanic (ED+: VI 5.10b A2 90 degrees, 950m, Giarolli-Orlandi, 1987). However deteriorating weather may lead them to change their objective to Cerro Standhart (click for original report)

Ian Parnell writes, " Weather completely crapped out in the mountains for now, but we will get more supplies then head back tomorrow and wait for fingers crossed another weather window.

We are definitely beginning to ere towards Cerro Standhart not Torre Egger, weather just too scary and I guess were wimps."
