Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile.
Андрей Вахутинский прислал мне свои замечательные слайды и написал статью о горном районе Torres del Paine в Патагонии (Чили). Этой статьёй мы открываем раздел "Районы" в обновлённой галерее клуба. Владимир Кельман.

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Chile
Torres del Paine is probably one of the most impressive mountain areas on Earth. There are few places like this with pillars of basalt reaching almost 1,000m in height surrounded by glaciers and lakes. These mountains are not like anything else I happened to see in Europe, Asia or Americas. The closest relative both in shape and location is Fitz Roy - Cerro Torre massive in the nearby Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, Argentina. A story of a fictitious climbing there became a subject of a movie by Werner Herzog "Shrei aus Stein" ("Scream of the Stone") shot on location - perhaps the best film about mountaineering ever made.
