Pirmin Bertle, after traveling across the Atlantic ocean by boat and across Patagonia in a van with his family, discovered this line at Dorotea outside
of Puerto Natales in Chilean Patagonia.
“Never have seen rock like this before, never have made moves like this. Never in a spot like this,” he writes in the video description. “In the end it
turned out to be pretty hard, 10 days of work.”
He named the boulder problem The Cold and Smelly Breath of Death after the rotting animal nearby. He suggested 8B+/8C (V14/V15) for the grade—which
would make it one of Latin America’s hardest.
