Camp Farm

Camp Farm.

We had a dry hike down to the valley floor the following day and then a day of rain. Our general feeling was that we had ticked the biggest thing we were going to get on this trip and anything else would be a nice bonus. That bonus came the following day when we climbed Camp Farm – an 8-pitch 5.10 on Cerro La Junta ~45 minutes from our base camp. We did the right hand side variation to the first pitch (2 pitches of 5.10 instead of the 5.11 slab) and enjoyed the rest of the route. However, I think its biggest attribute is that it’s close to camp. The last pitch was a bit pain in the ass as we had to down climb to reach the start of the crack (actually more of a groove).

Cerro La Junta from the valley floor. It’s actually a ridge of a mountain behind it…not as dome-like as it appears from the valley (Jan. 2015).

On the hike down, we found the fixed lines for the tyrolean traverse above the river. This here my pack and I are in the middle of the crossing (Jan. 2015).

God, we were ready for some alcohol.
