Jirishanca, East Face, Attempt. On July 7, Aritza Monasterio (Peru), Marjan Kovac and Pavle Kozjek (Slovenia) made an attempt to climb a new route on the east face of Jirishanca. They approached the glacier between Yerupaja Chico and started on a buttress on the left side of the face. Since the weather in the Cordillera Huayhuash was extremely poor in the beginning of July, they found a lot of new powder snow on the face, and after some 700 meters of climbing they abandoned the attempt. They descended the same route.
