Aguja CAT, Mate Humo. This obscure tower, located at the northern end of the Cerro Torre group between Aguja Cuatro Dedos and Cerro Domo Blanco, saw a new route by Austrians Tommy Bonapace and Christian Zenz. Their line, which they completed in late March, climbs the steep east face and involves 11 pitches with difficulties to 6/A1. Theirs might be the first ascent of this peak, as there is no clear historical record of any previous ascents. They named their route Mate Humo.
