Cerro El Mocho – East face

3. Todo o Nada

350m 85°

Gian Carlo Grassi, Roberto Pe and Mauro Rossi (Italy), 18/11/1986.

Description. Follows the obvious couloir on the east face. This route is a good objective for a cold or bad weather day. Definitely a quality climb. Well worth the walk.

History. One of four new routes that Grassi and Rossi climbed during a month long visit. Pe climbed with them in three of those new routes, all but the suicidal line on Adela Sur, but opened a forth one with Karo and partners, see Grey Yellow Arrow route on El Mocho. In the mid 1980s, at a time when most climbers only had eyes for Torre and Fitz, their search for unclimbed lines in smaller peaks was a clear step forward.

Approach. Niponino.

Descent. Via the same route.
