Matt Van Biene: Chalten Portraits
Brette Herrington: Brette had her first season here this year. When she is heading into the hills, her pack is bigger than she is, but that doesn't slow her down much. Familiar with hard rock climbing, she took those skills to the granite spires of the Fitz Roy massif. Highlights include climbing the North Pillar of Fitz Roy in a day and completing the first female free solo of one of the world's best 5.11s, Chiaro de Luna. It was the second-ever free solo of the peak, and the only female free solo of a tower in the range.
