We check the meteograms every few hours and analyze the changes in precipitation and wind speed/direction religiously. Every now and then a glimmer of hope appears, then the window will get pushed back until it doesn't exist any more. We were meant to begin the long walk up to our tent and stash this morning, however we woke up to fresh snowfall and heavy winds.
It looks like the west face of Cerro Torre is off the cards now due to weather. But i'm not as bothered as i would have expected, after seeing the amount of equally impressive objectives to go for, and after having climbed Standhardt by the completely awesome "Exocet".
