Aguja Bifida – Punta Filip - West face

14. Espera que pegue

400m 6b C1

Jonathan Griffin - Tad McCrea, (US), 2/2018, to 50 meters below the summit.

The first ascensionists describe good quality rock and fun climbing, reminiscent of the Sierras granite. They point out thet the face has potential for more routes of similar character.

History.To reach the base Jon and Tad hopped over the Standhardt Col, bivouaquing at the base. Because in the morning it was windy and cold, they did not start climbing until 1PM, completing the last three pitches in the dark. They bivied once more on a broad ledge on the east side, not far below the summit block, which they did not climb. In the morning bad weather hit them hard as they descended into the Torre Valley. The name refers to a special kind of spinach soup they are very fond of.

Approach. Paso Marconi to Circo De los Altares or via Niponino and over Col Standhardt.

Descent. Rappel east, down Amigos Perdidos.
