Cerro Torre, A la Recherche du Temps Perdu and the Ragni di Lecco route. In early January, taking 32 hours base-to-summit and two days round-trip from their bivy, Kelly Cordes and Colin Haley made the first link-up of A la Recherche du Temps Perdu (800m to Col of Hope, no summit, Marsigny-Parkin, 1994), on the south face of Cerro Torre, with the upper 600m of the Ragni di Lecco route (Chiappa-Conti-Ferrari-Negri, 1974) on the west face and west ridge. See Haley's feature article earlier in this Journal.
