Mountain of Storms

In the summer of 1968 three men – climber and surfer Yvon Chouinard, climber and skier Doug Tompkins, champion skier Dick Dorworth and English climber Chris Jones – set off from California in an old van to surf, ski and climb their way down to the southern end of Argentina where they met up with a young British climber, Chris Jones. Their goal was to climb a mountain that had been climbed only twice before: Cerro Fitz Roy.

Inspired by their many adventures ,Yvon went on to start the outerwear brand  Patagonia and  Doug the brand  The North Face.
