Tuzgle: Go and Come Back - Andreas Mölk

 
Tuzgle: Go and Come Back - Andreas Mölk
 
June 24, 2012 - 
 

Tuzgle, Argentina. We came down here looking for bouldering projects, but we found the strangest climbing paradise on earth. It's where your fear starts to dance and the altitude works it's magic. And if the highballs does not get you into troubles, the dirt road driving definitly will. All of this may sound like some crazy hallucination effected by the hight, but it's all true - we think!

 

Tuzgle, Argentina. We came down here looking for bouldering projects, but we found the strangest climbing paradise on earth. It's where your fear starts to dance and the altitude works it's magic. And if the highballs does not get you into troubles, the dirt road driving definitly will. All of this may sound like some crazy hallucination effected by the hight, but it's all true - we think!

Year 2008: Rumors about a virgin place high up north in the Argentinian Andes came up. So we took the next flight with nothing mor than climbing equipment in our bags excitement in our heads. We fought against hight and highballs and recieved as an exchange an intense, profound and sometimes also a painful experience. What we left, were tons of climbed and unclimbed boulders. 

Year 2010: We went back and further: back to Tuzgle and further on our projects; prepared and ready to push our limits. After more than a month of living on our limits we were physically f*** but mentaly still horny.

Year 2012: We were back in black, for another season in the abyss, to do what had to be done: satisfy our apetite for destruction! The main concern of the last trip was - what we finally could do (!) - working on unfinished projects.

Finally the Argentina chapter ends! We are moving on, away from Tuzgle and San Antonio de los Cobres. satisfied from the ascents as well as good and ready for physical and mental healing - hopefully!
