Nevado Ocshapalca, South Face, Intsumisioa. It was reported that Spaniards Balta Fonsecca and Rafa Santesteban climbed a new route, Intsumisioa (500 meters, 70°-90°) on the south face of the mountain*. They climbed a steep couloir on the left side of the face and descended the same line. (Desnivel)

*There are already at least four routes on the south face of Ocshapalca that lead to the summit. It is unclear whether this was in fact a new route or a line that shared terrain with previously established routes.
