Friga Peak Attempt and Schwarzenbach Falls. Catalan Jordi Tosas attempted a big corner on Friga Peak above the Parade Glacier solo in June. After climbing 100 meters, he was driven back by storm. He put all his gear in a snow hole. When he returned to retrieve it twelve days later, he discovered it had been buried by avalanches. He did recover it in mid July. He made a remarkable solo climb on the 1600-foot-high Schwarzenbach Falls, which he ascended on the bigger left icefall. His climb of Asgard (“Hyperborea”) is recorded earlier in a full article in this Journal.
