Roger Schäli, Simon Gietl - First Ascent Peru Expedition 2015
Roger Schäli from Swizerland and Simon Gietl from Italy achieved a new first ascent on the granite monolith Esfinge (5325m). The mountain is located in Paron (Cordillera Blanca), Peru.
Alongside the first ascent the team also climbed the two routes „Cruz del Sur“ (7b, 900m) and the Classic „1985“ (6c, insight).
Their new route „Chappie“ is situated on the South-East face (600m), which took them five days until they reached the summit. Roger & Simon: „It’s an amazing gift to be able to leave our mark on this mountain with this beautiful route.“
