Monte Cuisaltepe. On November 2, William T. Hunter and I made a new route on the west buttress of Monte Cuisaltepe near Los Cocos. We used no protection on this 5.5 climb. Our plans to climb the south face were thwarted by unprotectable, overhanging, friable rock. At Masaya there are several sections of unvegetated wall surrounding the lake and volcano of the same name. On November 5 and 6, we did one route of 5.7 near the southwest shore and half of another on beautiful, thinly-seamed, dusty, difficult rock.
