Jim Donini’s Patagonia Adventures {Part 1}

Mar. 7th 2012

Jim Donini’s climbing and exploration resume is impressive with first ascents from Patagonia to Alaska. Among climbers, he is also known for his culinary brilliance and his ability to capture a campfire audience. Donini let us in on a glimpse of his experience in Patagonia this winter, proving once again that his spirit for adventure is alive and well.

Adventure, it has been famously said, begins only when things start to go wrong and “wrong” is never a part of someone’s itinerary when they set off. Real adventure, then, is rarely planned but must be fully embraced if a reasonable outcome is desired. Throw in the solo aspect and the stage is set for a few fun filled days traversing some of the least visited terra firma on our crowded planet.
