Navarro Iker Madoz, Marc Toralles and Roger Cararach have made the second ascent of a big mixed route on Jirishanca called Tambo, which was first climbed in 2003 by Didier Jourdain and Aymeric Clouet.
Esperando a que salga el sol en nuestro primer vivac en la pared. Atados pero con suficiente espacio para tumbarse, un gusto. Y con unas vistas incomparables! @rogercararachsoler y @marc.toralles #ternua #borealoutdoor #altus #esportivaaksa #huayhuash #Perú #jirishanca #caraeste @ternua_official @esportivaaksa @borealoutdoor
The 1,000-metre line climbs steep terrain up the southeast face of the striking peak in the Huayhuash Mountain Range.
The three strong climbers repeated the 1,000-metre 5.12 A2 M4 simply beacause they were all in the right place at the right time.
The route was reported to have loose rock throughout and topped with snow and ice and took them only six days, versus seven on the first ascent.
While the climbers completed the second ascent of the big route, they did not summit the mountain due to high winds and were forced to do 20 rappels down the wall.
“The three of us are very happy about this first repeat of a spectacular route. Not only for the wall and the environment, but also for the style. A true alpine climb.”
