A few days ago, Alessandro Bau and Giovanni Zaccaria climbed a four-pitch new line on the east face of Cerro Piergiorgio. They started via the classic “Cara Este” route, to then head right, climbing four pitches (3 x 60m, 1 x30m) in a stunning ice-filled corner with difficulties to WI5 and M6 - the crux being finding adequate protection. In the upper half they joined “Esperando la cumbre” (Giordani-Maspes 1996), climbing three more pitches (35m M5/6, 25m M4, 45m M6), and reaching the top of one of the gendarmes at the northern end of the summit ridge. The name refers to a delicious apple crumble they ate at Piedra del Fraile.
