Cerro Adela Sur - Southeast face

3. Cara Sureste

600m 90º M4

Robert Jasper (Germany), 12/12/1994.

Description. Climbs a line in the upper southeast face, involving much snow and ice and some mixed climbing.

History. After a five hour approach from basecamp Jasper soloed the route in a short two hours. From the summit he traversed along the ridge to Cerro Grande, climbing cerros El Ñato and El Doblado, following Bonatti and Mauri’s steps (see Adela traverse). He accomplished this traverse in 22 hours from and to campo De Agostini, including a 5-hour bivouac in a snowcave between El Ñato and El Doblado.

Approach. Glaciar Grande Superior.

Descent. Jasper descended from Cerro Grande via it’s east ridge, having traversed to that point. If you only climb Adela Sur try descending from the Trento col (Adela-Ñato) to the east or traverse the west face of El Ñato to paso Doblado (Ñato-Doblado), then to Paso Tunel (Solo-Grande) and back to De Agostini.
