South America, Bolivia, Yacuma Aguja

Yacuma Aguja. Italians B. Balatti, R. Riva and G. Valsecchi made the first ascent of the 1200-meter-high northwest buttress of Yacuma Aguja (6005 meters, 19,700 feet) in the Ancohuma-Illampu group. They followed first a rocky crest, then an ice ridge, over séracs to the ice triangle just below the top and to the summit.
