Huascarán, the Garganta from the East. Catalans Jordi Agulló, J. Angles, Toni Bros, Joaquín Prunes, R. Biosco and Spaniard Rodolfo Pajares in September climbed a new route to the Garganta up the icefall from the east and from there continued on to the summit up the left center of the north slope. An avalanche swept their route the day before they climbed it.
