Ryan Huetter, who received a 2009 Mountain Fellowship Award for young climbers from the AAC, has climbed a 1,000-foot new route in El Cajón de Arenales in Argentina, with Brazilian partner Wagner Machado. Huetter climbed the North Tower of Paine earlier this season and then traveled to Arenales, where he and Machado completed the all-free new route. You can read his trip report at the AAC website.

Mountain Fellowships are awarded twice each year to climbers 25 and under to help them complete climbs or expeditions they might not otherwise be able to attempt. To learn more or download an application, click here.
