El Gran Trono Blanco. Paul Piana has written a full article on the first free ascent of the Pan American Route on the Gran Trono Blanco which he made with his wife. This appears earlier in this Journal.

El Gran Trono Blanco. This winter, Jeff Hollenbaugh and I climbed the “Giraffe” route on El Gran Trono Blanco. This climb has been repeated very few times. This big wall is in an outrageous location with an exciting approach. We spent two nights on the 1500-foot face (VI, 5.10, A3+).
