West Face

After Carlos Buhler the West Face of Siula Grande has been climbed one more time in 2002, by the Dutch Rogier van Rijn en Eva Oomen.
It's nice to see an album of Siula Grande, it's a pitty there is no mountain page of such a beautiful mountain!

Re: West Face

Thanks Koen! I updated the album, I created this album in pretty much knowing that no one would make it, or at least not for many years. The mountain is not taken for good reasoning, few ascents are made, and I doubt anyone on sp has climbed it, and if anyone here has, there propably one of those climbers who are too busy climbing or with there daily life. I was impressed to see here on sp the mountain Yerupaja which is right next to Siula Grande. Also this album was made to encourage people who have photos of this mountain to post them. As for the link to Carlos Buhler's photo, I got permission directly from him to do so.
Cheers Josh Lewis.

Re: West Face

I've never stepped outside North American in my life! But I certainly plan on visiting South America. I created this album because of my fascination with Siula Grande. And when looking around I have not found any other collection of photos for this mountain here on sp.

South Face.

Hi, in your page here it says that the south Face was never climbed. In Wikipedia, it says it was climbed in 2001 if I'm correct? Do you know for certain that the south Face of Siula Grande was never climbed up to the day?

Re: South Face.

Thanks Ryan for the correction which has been updated. Ironically it was Wikipedia back in 2011 that said the South Face had not been climbed. I'm guessing the records finally got sorted out and publicly known enough to be written in a few places online.

Re: South Face.

No problem! I was just hoping that I could be rewarded with a first ascent but that's ok. Great age! Keep it up!
