New Maps/ Videos/ Pictures and Descriptions from the Latino Trilogy

Hi Guys, I have just uploaded pictures and videos of my most recent trip to Argentina and Chilie. You can access them via “Gallery of current climbs” and under the respective heading of pictures and videos. Alternatively, you can check them out at the following:

I also did up some maps so that it is easier for everyone to follow where I had been. Instead of just reading text on where I had travelled to and how long each journey took, view the maps. The numbers labelled beside each line of travel (marked in red for vehicular journey and yellow for journey on foot) corresponds to the text below.

Please feel free to view the enlarged map of Aconcagua/ Ojos/ San Fransisco as well as the 3D google earth image of the route we took on Acon.
