Torre de Parón. Four Spaniards from Madrid made an impressive new route on the 900-meter-high east buttress of the Torree de Parón, taking eight days and climbing UIAA difficulty of VI+ , A3. The crux pitches were on the second quarter of the buttress. They climbed in two pairs, the first preparing the route and the second carrying the equipment. The summit was reached on August 20 by Manolo Olivera, Alejandro Madrid, Eduardo de la Cal and Chema Polanco. The route ascends left of the 1985 Bohorquez-García route. That pair made the first route on the face in ten days.
