Cerro Nire


This peaks is another good alternative for those looking for a summit with excellent views and fun classic mountaineering. Just as in the case with Mojon Rojo, it is surprising that this peak does not draw more people.

The routes mentioned below are mentioned mainly for the sake of keeping a historical record and not for their special interest as climbs. If you want to climb the peak, pick the best-looking line and enjoy yourself.

approach.


1. Cara Este

Sergio Bossini (Argentina), 28/2/1961.

Description. Following an easy route on the very rotten rock of the eastern face. His was the first ascent of the peak.

History. The original intention of this expedition was to recover Toni Egger’s body, but large amounts of snow and adverse conditions proved their efforts fruitless. However, they did manage to place a plaque in his memory at the base of Cerro Torre, not far from where he lost his life. The plaque was sent by the SAT from Trento. This expedition was only possible thanks to the help given by Tito Lucchini and Carlo Turrini (for other ascents accomplished during this expedition see below and Mojon Rojo).

Approach. From Laguna Sucia.

2. Cara Sur

Sergio Bossini, Juan Spikermann and Cesarino Fava (Argentina), 1/3/1961.

Description. A slightly more difficult line than the east face.

History. The original intention of this expedition was to recover Toni Egger’s body, but large amounts of snow and adverse conditions proved their efforts fruitless. However, they did manage to place a plaque in his memory at the base of Cerro Torre, not far from where he lost his life. The plaque was sent by the SAT from Trento. This expedition was only possible thanks to the help given by Tito Lucchini and Carlo Turrini (for other ascents accomplished during this expedition see below and Mojon Rojo).

3. Cara Norte

In late 2000, Germans Thomas Tivadar and Stephan Huber climbed a posible new route following the north pillar (600 meters, mostly easy with sections to 6a/50, with much loose rock). They christened their line “Rost Spur”.


Cerro Ñire

It is unclear where this peak is. Likely to the east of Techado Negro.

Argentine Sergio Bossini did the first ascent in 1961.

Description. Located just above the so called “Cascada Ruidosa” camp. This camp was used by numerous early expeditions to the area, of which Hans Zechner was probably the first one, and was located just before the now defunct “Maestri” camp.

Bibliography. Bolletino SAT 1961/1-2 p. 15.
