Piergiorgio, Gringos Locos. On November 16 to 18, and again on December 7 and 8, Italians Maurizio Giordani and Gianluca Maspes climbed Gringos Locos (VII 7a A3/4). The 21-pitch route lies in the center of the northwest face, left of the Vettori-Manica Greenpeace route. It was climbed during spells of clear weather and involved 40 hours of climbing and 60 hook moves.
