West Electric Hill - Guillaumet Needle
.At the end of February, @ colinhaley1 and @alexhonnold climbed the northern edge of the West Electrico Cerro, the mountain toothwest of Square Pass. From the summit they followed south, up the ridge, climbing and down several towers, using the rope once, to make a 30 m rapel. They passed the "Square" to the west, and reassembled on the edge, climbing two towers before connecting with the Giordani variant on the Guillaumet Needle. They finally got stuck at the foot of the Comesaña-Fonrouge, which they made in two long ones.
.In late February, @alexhonnold and @colinhaley1 simul-soloed the north ridge of Cerro Eléctrico Oeste, a sharp craggy peak north of Paso Cuadrado. From the summit they continued south, soloing up and down the jagged ridge, using the rope only once, to make 30m rappel off a very sharp needle. They bypassed the “Cuadrado” on the west side, to then regain the ridge, climbing over two towers to connect to the Giordani “sit start” on Aguja Guillaumet, eventually roping-up at the base of the Comesaña-Fonrouge, which they simul-climbed in two pitches.


Taken from top of Snow Creek village area 4 13 20, I'd estimate snow down around 6,500ft. I'd expect a hard-packed, (possibly dangerous) layer under all this new, heavy snow.
