Cerro Pollone, East Face, New Route. Italians Lorenzo Nadali and Luiggi Trippa climbed a 550-meter new line on October 19. The route climbs an obvious ice runnel that in certain sections is only two feet wide. They named the route Mastica e Sputa (TD 90°). In early December, French Bruno Sourzac and Laurance Monnoyeur completed the second ascent.
