The Egger Project Episodio 4

No hay comentarios


Two years, two unsuccessful attempts to climb the west face of the Torre Egger in Patagonia. Matteo Bernasconi and Matteo Della Bordella are tired and demoralized. Their second effort almost killed both of them and it takes nine months of licking their mental wounds to get back the motivation to give it one more try. For their third attempt they inject new life into their partnership with the 22-year old Luca Schiera.

But even the new blood can't help when the famously-inclement Patagonian weather descends and keeps them from climbing for 35 days. Berna eventually heads home but Della Bordella and Schiera stay, knowing that their chances of summiting are only around fifty percent. After yet another week they receive news over the satellite phone that they are going to get four precious days of good weather. It's now or never.

The Egger Project Episodio 3

In 2010 Matteo Della Bordella, Luca Schiera and Matteo Bernasconi were presented with a challenge: the west face of the Torre Egger, possibly the last unclimbed big wall in Patagonia. They knew it would be a challenge. What they didn't know was that the project would take three years and nearly kill them in one fell swoop.

When we rejoin the climbers on their second attempt they have already spent seven days in a snow cave eating year-old cheese and chain smoking. When the weather breaks things seem to be looking up until Della Bordella slips off an overhanging roof, pulls nearly every piece of protection out of the wall and leaves himself and his belayer, Bernasconi, hanging by a single cam.

Here's an excerpt of what Della Bordella wrote after he and Bernasconi recovered and descended: "For the whole night I'm unable to close my eyes, the cold and the great quantity of adrenaline which still flow through my body keep me awake. I struggle with whether I should try to go up again, with or without the hand drill. After thinking about it for a long time I've decided I'm too frightened to try to go up there again. It's so hard for my ego to accept, but I realize that what happened - it's just too much for me, I don't want to put myself in that kind of game anymore. I'm too afraid to lose!" 

Tune in next week to see how the team rebounds from its darkest hour.

The Egger Project Episodio 2

When equipment breaks while climbing (friends), it's not good - but if friends break up in the tent (when they're snowed-in), it's even worse.

In just one sunny day, Matteo Della Bordella and Matteo Bernasconi climbed six pitches of the old attempt of Salvaterra, on-sighting an A3 part and opening a new pitch. So the beginning of January 2011 seemed to pave a good way to the target. 

So is the west face of Egger, the last unclimbed wall of Patagonia, easier than expected?

The Egger Project Episodio 1

A first ascent can take some work, but three years, three attempts and 150 days of tracing the new line - that is commitment. 

The Egger Project is a series following the incredible first ascent of the west face of Egger in Patagonia. This is possibly one of the greatest adventures in alpinism - in the first two years of trying, alpinists Matteo della Bordella and Matteo Bernasconi teamed up on the route and came 30m shy of the Col de Lux.


Feeling lucky to be alive, they decided to retreat. At that point they had climbed 23 pitches with difficulties up to 7a and A2, had placed only two bolts, and named their attempt 'Die Another Day' in reference to their anchor almost pulling out and their experience of coming close to falling to their deaths. 


And that's not their final attempt... Follow this incredible video series and find out how these alpinists achieved their very difficult dream of a first ascent in Patagonia.
