Traverse from San Juan to the North Col of Cayesh. Italians Paola Gigliotti and Massimo Marchini made an interesting traverse in June from the summit of San Juan, over the top of Maparaju to bivouac in the col between Maparaju and Milpocraju. On the second day they climbed Milpocraju by its west face, at least in part by the British route of 1985. They then continued along under the west face of Cayesh to the north col of Cayesh.
