Africa, Mali, Suri Tondo, Veus del Desert and BMW

Suri Tondo, Veus del Desert and BMW. It was reported that Spanish climbers Sílvia Vidal and Pepe Masip established Veus del Desert (6b+ A4+, ten pitches) on the middle of the southeast face of the south summit of the 400-meter Suri Tondo. The first five pitches were almost entirely aid, while the remainder of the route went free at 5 to 6b+.

Meanwhile, Bernard Marnette and Salvador Campillo made the first ascent of the Suri Tondo’s west pillar with the seven-pitch route BMW (6a+). (High Mountain Sports 205)
