Patagonia RAVE dispatch from the field, Coyhaique, Chile
From Trevor Frost, iLCP RAVE guru via phone from the back of a pick-up truck near Coyhaique, Chile:
“All is well down here in Patagonia, the weather has improved, the sun has come out and it’s beautiful. Hopefully this weather will hold out and more storms won’t move in as it’s been a very rainy season.
Daniel Beltra and Jeff Foott are arriving today and more of the crew will arrive tomorrow. On the 13th we’ll be heading down to Lago General Carrera, which is where I was for the last few days. Lago General Carrera is near the Baker River, one of the Rivers that is threatened by the dam proposals.
I also met up with Jim Donini, patron of the Patagonian Foundation and a world renowned climber. He’s done first assents around the world in particular Torre Egger. So everything is coming together and i’m excited to get this RAVE off the ground. ”
