South America, Peru, Cordillera Blanca, Nevado de Carás I and Artesonraju
Nevado de Carás I and Artesonraju. Nigel Hellewell and Albi Sole climbed the south face of the Nevado de Carás I (19,767 feet). The snow-and-ice face led to the final difficult six pitches of mixed climbing. Sole then teamed with Canadian Greg Spohr to do a new route on the southwest face of Artesonraju (19,767 feet).
