Comments: Haha! My apologies for the poor topo and the poor route! Dirty? Not straight forward? Adventure?! Oh no! And I here I thought climbing in Patagonia was gonna be fun and easy...

The names I have chosen are names that myself and other locals of the area have used for the past 8+ years and have started to become the de facto names of the problems. I realize that we are most likely not the first ascentionists of many of the lines (if not all) and therefore do not have the right to replace names of ones that may or may not exist.
