Imjatse, Southwest Face, 1989. Italian Carlo Stratta and Dawa Lama climbed a new route on the southwest face of Imjatse (Island Peak). They climbed the 4000-foot route in seven hours to reach the southwestern summit. They continued the traverse to the highest (northeastern) summit. It appears that this route lies to the right of the southwest ridge on the steep ice face.
