Siula Grande's East Face
Siula Grande was first climbed July 28, 1936 by Erwin Schneider and Arnold Awerzger and has not seen that many ascents ever since. In 1985 Joe Simpson and his partner Simon Yates climbed the West face which Joe had a bad accident which became an epic struggle for survival and a great story called "Touching the Void" which goes down as one of my favorite climbing stories.
