Cachi, north face. Cachi is a sacred 6,380m mountain in Salta, Argentina. Nicolás Pantaleón and Nicolás Yannito, both from Salta, ascended the virgin north face in November. They began on November 8, and continued marching until switching to the ridge for the final two camps. On November 13 they reached the summit at 10:45 a.m. and descended quickly, in harsh weather, reaching Salta the next day.
