My first trip down to Chile was with Yvon Chouinard, Rick Ridgeway, Chris Malloy, @thetorpedopeople, Danny Moder, @timmyoniel, Makohe and @jeffjohnson_beyondandback in 2007. We flew down to travel, climb, surf and also spend some time with Doug and Kris Tompkins who were busy building the multiple parks that were just handed over to Chile recently. It was quite the cast of characters. Besides making a film, we were there to try and climb the pictured mountain - Corcovado.
Corcovado and everything else we could see from the plane, horizon to horizon, are all part of Parque Pumalin and Corcovado National Park, just two of several parks that Doug, Kris and the Tompkins Conservation team have been working on for last 25 years. It's difficult to understand the scope and scale of the project and the amount of land preserved without seeing it from the air. #onassignment
