Route Climbed: Normal from Chipude Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2009
Florence and I loved the scrumble way up to the Fortaleza. I tried the descend thru the steep south ridge but stop at the last part. Scary and exposed without rope. Climbing Fortaleza was an excellent way to start the year anyhow and set up the tone !.
