Sasha DiGiulian and Carlo Traversi have been thwarted by storms and winter conditions once again on their mission to climb La Paciencia (5.13b)—though, they aren’t giving up on the Eiger North Face just yet.
DiGiulian and Traversi are setting their sights on the 20-pitch Magic Mushroom (7c+ 5.13a), also on the Eiger’s North Face. This route appears to be less affected by the snow and rain.
