South America, Peru—Cordillera Huayhuash, Ninashanco, Northeast Ridge and Southeast Buttress

Ninashanca, Northeast Ridge and Southeast Buttress. In June Arnold Larcher, Dieter Blümel, Adolf Praxmair and I climbed the northeast ridge of Ninashanca, more or less without problems. In August in a single day Egon Wurm and Hannes Condin made alpine-style a new route, the southeast buttress, a mixed climb of some 5000 feet. The rock was very good. After overcoming some very difficult ice they reached the upper part of the northeast ridge, which they followed to the top. Wurm soloed the east ridge of Jirishanca Chico.
