Sam Page runs an interesting website called The Mountaineering Review, and he just posted a review of Enduring Patagonia.
I’m happy he enjoyed Enduring Patagonia so much, and that he got a kick out of the ball washing stories — the weirdest job I’ve ever done.
One of the under-appreciated aspects of hardcore alpine climbing is how hard it is to earn the money to take the trips while simultaneously climbing enough to be in shape for the top-end trips.
But for the record, I did wash my clothes on those trips. Well, except for the month spent out on the ice cap. No laundry was done out there.
