Kaga Tondo, Croatica, and Other Ascents. From mid-January to mid-February, an expedition of Croatian climbers was active in Mali. Boris Cujic and Ivica Matkovic led the team, which climbed a new line on Kaga Tondo. Croatica (F6c+, 650m) was established from the ground up with electric drill and bolts. The route took four days to be established. The team experienced an average temperature of 30°C.

They also climbed (traditional style) four new routes with difficulties from V+ to VIII up to 650 meters in length. (Further details are lacking.) Finally, they repeated the French Route (Guy Abert et al) on Suri Tondo (F7a, 580m).
