Cerro Torre, First Female Ascent. Italians Maurizio Giordani and Rosanna Manfrini arrived in the early southern spring below Cerro Torre. Only ten days after their arrival the two completed the Maestri route on the peak, reaching the summit on October 29. The descent was difficult because of very stormy weather. This is the first time that this peak has been ascended by a woman.
