Torre Central del Paine, East Face. Spanish Basques Mikel Zabalza, Manolo Blásquez, Ritxi López and José Luis Moreno made the second ascent of the very difficult route on the east face of the Torre Central del Paine. This route was climbed in 1986 by Ermanno Salvaterra, Elio Orlandi and Maurizo Giarolli. They fixed 700 meters of rope on this 1000-meter route (UIAA VII, A2).
