La Esfinge, Killa Quillay and variation. From July 24-31, Spanish climbers Ángel Olmos, Antonio L. Liria, and José M. Cancho climbed the east face via a new 17-pitch route, Killa Quillay (700m, VI 6b+ A2), located between Cruz del Sur (Bole-Karo, 2000) and the Original Route (Bohórquez-García, 1985). Killa Quillay was repeated (date unknown) by Basque Aritz Labiano and Belgian Michael le Comte, with a leftward deviation on the upper portion, toward Volverás a mí (Polanco-Olivera-Madrid-de la Cal, 1987), before reuniting with Killa Quillay.
