Aconcagua South Face. From January 25 to 31 Leszek Cichy and I climbed the Yugoslav route on the left side of the south face of Aconcagua. Because of the lack of ice in the couloirs in the lower part, for the first 1000 meters we had to make a new variant to the right of the original route. It was difficult. We joined the original route under the sérac in the middle of the route.
