Three South American climbers completed a new free route up the north face of Patagonia's Fitz Roy peak, climbing 30 pitches in a three-day, alpine-style push.

Flavio Daflon and Sergio Tatari of Brazil and Luciano Fiorenza of Argentina joined forces to put up Samba do Leao, which includes 28 new pitches, some as hard as 5.11b.

Fiorenza, a 29-year-old mountain guide, is one of Argentina's most prominent first ascensionists, with new climbs on Cerro Catedral, Cochamó, and others to his credit.
