Chopicalqui, West Face, Piece of Happiness. In July, I climbed a new route on the west face of Chopicalqui with Bostjan Perse. The name of the route is Piece of Happiness (D 80°, 500m). We started to climb at about 5400 meters and finished at 5900 meters. The snow conditions were good. The last 200 meters were climbed on hard black ice.
