Pucaraju, Ascents. It was reported that, in 1995, Cordier and Maynet climbed La Princesse au Petit Pois (TD) on the 300-meter south face of Pucaraju (5090m) on a gully line immediately to the right of the 1995 route Hot Line. In 1996, Abramowski and Carrard repeated La Princesse on May 27. The next day, they climbed Adam and Eve (TD-) to the left, establishing anchors on the route. On June 11, a Swiss party repeated Hot Line and made a descent of Adam and Eve. On July 12, Kike Ortuno and Gilbert Salvador climbed the remaining (leftmost) gully on the face, naming their route Mururoa (TD+ 85°, with a rock section of V+). They descended via the Adam and Eve rappels. (High Mountain Sports 177)
