The title of the blog is inspired by Ricky Martin’s 1999 hit, Livin’ La Vida Loca (Livin’ the Crazy Life) – somehow it seems fitting. Conveniently enough, ‘roca’, the Spanish word for rock, rhymes with ‘loca’, Spanish for crazy,…hmmm…coincidence? You decide, as we cling to cliffs and dangle from our digits, bouncing through South America, livin’ la vida roca (livin’ the rock life).

Into the Fray
We trekked 4 hours into the mountains to the Refugio Frey in Argentina. Spent 5 days in the mountains on starvation rations (unless we ate cake in the Refugio). There was some excellent weather…and some Patagonia weather. The clean granite spires and cracks gave us the best climbing of the trip so far.
I won’t describe any more as you can see it all on the video.
