This is the story of how the peaks of Cerro Standhart and Punta Herron were linked together. The climbs were made by the trentino moutaineers Ferruccio Vidi, Adriano Cavalloro and Ermanno Salvaterra. The first peak was reached along the east side following the Bridwell-Smith route and the second one along the north-east edge to Punta Herron. These two peaks are next to Cerro Torre in Patagonia. The new route to Punta Herron was dedicated to the children who perished under an avalanche in the Brenta Group in the summer of 1991.
Ermanno Salvaterra is an alpine guide and a skiing instructor. His name is associated with some of the most beautiful ascents of the Patagonia Mountains such as the third repetition of the Maestri route on Cerro Torre and the first winter ascent of the same route in 1985. During these feats he began, as an amateur, to shoot and become familiar with the camera. After his first short made for Jonathan at Cerro Torre, he shot a second in 1985, Magico Est, about the expedition to the Paine Towers. In 1992 he directed Blu Patagonia, a report on the chain of events of Cerro Standhard and Punta Herron. Among his films we should recall: Fuiste alpiste…è andata così (1995), Infinito Sud (1996) and Cerro Torre, el Arca del los Vientos (2006), which participated in the 54th Trentofilmfestival.
