Cerro Stanhardt, 1989. In AAJ, 1990, we reported on the new route of Mauricio Giarolli, Ermanno Salvaterra and Elio Orlandi on the west face of Cerro Stanhardt. After two weeks of bad weather, they then repeated the Bridwell-Smith-Smith route on the same face. It was their intention to traverse to Cerro Torre and climb that peak from there, but they lost the sack containing their bivouac gear and so had to descend without completing the climb.
