Ranrapalca, Scandinavian Direct, Solo. On July 24, Pavle Kozjek (Slovenia) made a solo ascent of Scandinavian Direct route (ED inf) on the north face of Ranrapalca (6162m). It took him three hours to climb this ca. 1000-meter mixed route (the topo of the first ascen-sionists indicate 12-15 hours for their ascent). He couldn’t get information about the other ascents of this route, which seems to be a little bit overgraded. He descended the Northeast Face route.
