Cololo, West Ridge, Cordillera Apolobamba. We approached the Cordillera Apolobamba by jeep via Nubi Pampa. From Base Camp at 15,000 feet, David Hick and I made a new route, the west ridge, on Cololo (Ccachuca; 5916 meters, 18,734 feet) on August 9. Four days later, we two made the second ascent of Nubi (5710 meters, 18,734 feet), probably following the Austrian route of 1957. The other members were Harvey Lomas, David Martingale and John Sterland.
