From the summit of Cerro Fitz Roy, in Argentine Patagonia, two weary climbers began their descent. But one wrong turn led to another, and then another, as they rappelled through the night until they hit a dead end, still several thousand feet above the glacier. Kelly Cordes recounts the dark and frigid hours that he and Craig Scariot spent shivering, wondering, and waiting for daylight.

Inspired by the essay published by Patagonia, Inc. written by Kelly Cordes, and performed live at the 2014 5Point Film Festival in Carbondale, Colorado.
