Whit Magro climbs all nine major towers in Fitz Roy Massif

May. 15th 2012

SCARPA recently learned that one of our climbing athletes, Whit Magro, became the first person to climb all nine of the major towers in the Fitz Roy Massif in Patagonia.

After returning home in late February, he learned that his personal accomplishment of climbing every major tower in the group made him the first to do so.  When asked about this accomplishment Whit stated, “I didn’t start climbing down there with this intention, but after last year’s success climbing the Wave Effect, finishing the range was an attainable goal, so I pushed for it.” The towers in order from north to south are Guillaumet, Mermoz, Fitz Roy, Silla, Desmochada, Poincenot, Innominata, Saint-Exupery, and de l’S.
