Carnicero, 1982. Italians climbed the southwest face of Carnicero for the first time in July 1982. They made Base Camp on Juraucocha at 14,300 feet. Camp I was at 16,575 feet below the fluted slope they climbed. Camp II was 1000 feet higher. Above they ascended 55° to 70° slopes on unstable snow. Finally in the last few hundred feet on the fourth day above Base Camp, C. Schranz and R. Morandi worked their way around séracs to the summit ridge and summit (5980 meters, 19,620 feet).
