Aguja de la S, East Face. On February 6, I climbed the east face of Aguja de la S (2350 meters, 13 pitches, 60° 5.10b A0) with the Argentine climber Gadi Slomka. In excellent weather we reached the rimaya, climbed the first three pitches of snow (60 degrees, plus or minus), and then the principal dihedral (the Austrian route?), finding 10 pitches of very good rock and big cracks. We reached the summit in a good day. We changed all the rappel gear for the benefit of other climbers.
