Kaga Tondo, Solucao Suicida. Various Ascents. It was reported that from June 6-13, three Brazilians (Márcio Bruno, Eliseu Frechou and Sérgio Tartari) put up the 550-meter Solucao Suicida on the east face of Kaga Tondo. It is believed that this is the first big climb to be put up in the Hombori Mountains in the middle of the African summer. The ascensionists spent six days on the wall in temperatures up to 50°C, drinking six liters of water per day. (High Mountain Sports 184)
