Jurau, West Face. A British expedition had hoped to climb the previously unascended west face of Siulá Chico but failed because of bad weather and health problems. However, Brian Barker and Jonathan Preston did complete a new route on the difficult west face of Jurau D (5674 meters, 18,616 feet). This was a 15-pitch climb on steep ice with a vertical section of Scottish Grade 5. A full report is in Climber and Hill Walker of December, 1988.
