Here's a link to the GPX file for Snow Creek, East Trail. This track has a couple of short deviations off the trail to boulders that needed a send. I can't verify that this trail is better that the other legal trail but I've had no issues repeating this trail- it's pretty enjoyable actually. The first rise out of the desert floor needs a couple of switchbacks added to mellow the rate of ascent and to minimize erosion.

I've also taken extreme steps to be respectful of the neighborhood when leaving my car. The trail follows and links old existing Native American foot beds and game trails. It generally follows the 1/2 rate of ascent rule to minimize erosion. There are cairns along the way, mostly to keep foot traffic consistently on the same path to minimize impact.

Unfortunately the conditions didn't present an opportunity to finish the climb this season.

POINCENOT NEEDLE - East Face / East Face - "Beggars Banquet".
Nico Favresse and Seán Villanueva opened their third track of the season, this time on the east face of the Poincenot. They started off the Whillans ramp, diverting to the right, to climb an almost 400-foot fissure parallel to "Desperate Patagonians", with which it shares a few meters of the 4th long. Conditions were not the best, with lots of ice in the fissures, which forced them to climb some sections per plate, including the key section, and in two places to make steps using a piolet. The climbing is intense, with many wide sections. Desperate Patagonians were rapelled, returning to the glacier at nightfall.

The Chilean Grande is a 1200-metre wall in a valley near the Rio de los Explorers, west of Puerto Tranquilo, in the Aysén region, Chile. In 2015, Étienne Tafary @e.tafary visited the area with Enzo Oddo, Felipe Andrade and Matias Larrain del Sante, but they did not try to consider it too difficult for the time and resources they had. Recently Étienne returned, this time with Antoine Eydoux, Etienne Grosclaude and Pierre-Jean Lallement. They spent almost a month in the area, doing 150 km of portage per person, and spending seven days on the wall until they had to quit due to persistent rain. At the bottom the climbing is "vegetable", but more is of high quality. More info on the expedition website, https://tchaloproductions.wixsite.com/aonikenk-film

Nico Favresse and Seán Villanueva opened their third track of the season, this time on the east face of the Poincenot. They started off the Whillans ramp, diverting to the right, to climb an almost 400-foot fissure parallel to "Desperate Patagonians", with which it shares a few meters of the 4th long. Conditions were not the best, with lots of ice in the fissures, which forced them to climb some sections per plate, including the key section, and in two places to make steps using a piolet. The climbing is intense, with many wide sections. Desperate Patagonians were rapelled, returning to the glacier at nightfall

The climber featured in this series of photo's is liselotte a 49 YO mum of two from Sweden, who has never climbed outdoors before. Deep end of the pool or experience of a lifetime? Her ascent of the mighty East face of Mount Kenya might seem a little bit extreme but with our help she managed to accomplish something she never thought remotely possible... Think BIG next time you plan your nest adventure. A climb on Mount Kenya is much more than just a magical 18 pitch route its equally the trek to the wall that's awesome! All in all I couldn't even begin to imagine a cooler adventure.

In three climbing days over the period of our first 8 days camping below the wall, we managed to reach the summit using fixed ropes. The unnamed peak and wall we baptized “Pared de la Plata”. This first ascent we called “Bailando con la Lluvia” (Dancing with the rain). This name refers to the difficulty we experienced these days climbing in between the rain curtains that turned the walls into raging waterfalls. We sneaked into every little peephole (tiny weather window) to reach that summit on a very grey, unstable day. On this first ascent, the obvious itinerary of pitches 10 to 12 didn’t go free because of the wetness, mud and moss in the cracks. Check out the second picture. We returned two days later with a good weather window ahead. We packed our well-prepared big wall kit and moved camp up on the wall, to the top of what we called “Puerto Pillar”.

Between February 20th and 22 Colin Haley @ colinhaley1 and Alex Honnold @alexhonnold crossed the Pollone Hills, Piergiorgiorgio and Dome Blanco. The first one climbed down his south face (400 m 65), living in the cabbage before the Piergiorgiorgio, then climbing "Waiting for the summit" (400 m, 70 m, 5). the north summit. Crossing Piergiorgio's summit was the most difficult and most committed section (300 m WI4➤ M5 A0). From the summit they went down to the southeast (more crosses and several rapels), living a second time before Cerro Dome Blanco, then climb the Final part of the "North Filo" (250 m, 60), and down northwest, to Marconi Glacier. They called this journey "The Crystal Castles Traverse". Despite the difficulties encountered, it was a pretty safe climbing, not finding paparazzi, no red carpets, nor journalists on the road.
