South America, Chile–Central Andes, San Gabriel, South Face, Winter Ascent, 1984

San Gabriel, South Face, Winter Ascent, 1984. On September 1, 1984 Christian Thiele and I made the first winter ascent of this route, first climbed by Colombians in 1982. (A.A.J., 1984, page 216). It is one of the few granite faces in central Chile. The ten rope lengths vary from 5.7 to 5.10 and usually follow well defined cracks.
