At the tourist office of the Los Alerces National Park in Patagonia, the forest ranger noticed that I had selected the most difficult trail. Suspicious, he asked me if I was in good enough shape to accomplish such an adventure. I cannot deny that I felt a little offended. “Of course “, I lied with aplomb.
I attacked the trail with a strong step. The first hour would have been easier without the nettles, mosquitos, blood suckers, and the fact that my right boot sole became unglued.
Then, things got a little complicated due to my problems of vertigo and tachycardia, and the fact that the trail climbed up to a cliff of 250 meters between enormous slippery rocks. I felt a little pain in my chest, my heart began to beat faster. I took my pulse, counted 140 beats per minute…. and my sight started blur.
Six hours later, when I opened my eyes in the medical evacuation helicopter which was transporting me to the hospital, I asked the medic if I could continue my climb. “Given your state of health”, he answered flatly, “you won’t be able to even climb a stool.”
