A few days ago and on the west face of Peineta, Sebastian Pelletti (AU) y Cristobal Vielma Sepulveda (CL) opened a beautiful 400 meter line to the left of CapicĂșa Pastor (Arancibia-Fica 2005). The red colored granite is of superb quality, with long clean corners, finger to fist cracks, and a couple of difficult slab sections to connect one crack system to the next. They found difficulties to 5.11 and A1, climbing mostly free, with a few short sections of aid, some thin, requiring pitons and micro-nuts. The weather on the day of the ascent was cold and windy, and although Seba and Cristobal started late they managed to reach the summit by 6PM. They rappelled “Billy the Kid” (Garber-Lloyd 1993), leaving their line completely clean

Ojos del Salado summits!
Expedition leader, Rob Wymer, reports:
"I am delighted to report that at approximately 3pm on Sunday 2 February Kevin, Adell and Rob B, plus Chilean guide, Paula and myself summitted Ojos del Salado, at 6893m the world's highest volcano. Despite perfect weather conditions, it was a tough climb due to unusual snow cover from a week ago making the going underfoot very tiring. The incredible views from the small summit did make up for our weariness!
