https://www.facebook.com/Patagonia-Vertical-563620956987849/   Scroll down-- Cerro Piergiorgio in Patagonia - Second ascent
Two days ago, Quentin Roberts (Canada) and Juho Knuuttila (Finland) climbed the Cara Este route on Cerro Piergiorgio, making the second ascent of the peak. They left Niponino at 5AM, reached the summit at 4PM, and got back to Niponino by 10:30PM, risking hefty speeding tickets from the local police… In the middle section they free-climbed the first aid pitch at M6R/X (35m) and also the second M6 (50m), which had been free-climbed in 2010 by Jonathan Griffith and Will Sim. Below the summit Juho and Quentin made a short rappel, narrowly missing a free ascent of the route and peak.

Quentin Lindfield Roberts and Chris Willie @ckwillie climbed Los Tiempos Perdidos into the Directa Huarpe to within a pitch and a half of the summit of Cerro Torre. There they encountered thick rime and lacking wings, they decided to retreat. During the descent along the Ragni Route, Chris was hit by a rock and briefly lost consciousness. Quentin got him to a safe spot, and after resting several hours they managed to continue. The hike out via Paso Marconi was long, with deep slushy snow, and little in the way of food. Kudos to them for the good climbing and also for managing very well what was a very dire situation. #selfreliantbadassmofos

IFMGA guides Tino Villanueva and Alan Rousseau just made what they believe to be the first ascent of Rungofarka (6,495m) in the Northern Indian Himalayas. The pair completed the climb in five days from their base camp (3,900m), and had three bivies on route.
