El Mocho and Torre de la Media Luna, 1993-4. In late December, Italians Ermanno Salvaterra and Adriano Cavallaro climbed a new route on the north face of El Mocho. At this time further details are not available. The same pair repeated the east buttress route on El Mocho first climbed in 1989 by Daniel Anker and Michel Piola. The Torre de la Media Luna is located near El Mocho. On that peak, Salvaterra soloed a nine-pitch route in early January, 1994.
