Aguja Standhardt - East face

2. East Chimney attempt

John Bragg and Jim Donini (USA), Ben Campbell-Kelly and Brian Wyvill (UK), 1974.

Description. They attempted to climb the chimney to the right of Exocet, but retreated a few meters below the north ridge, 150 meters from the summit. They encountered difficult climbing involving rotten ice and loose rock (basalt).

History. While hiking on the glacier to the base of the peak they found Toni Egger’s remnants. Mick Coffey took part of the expedition too.

Approach. Reading.

Pro. None. This basalt chimney is not worth trying, so no gear needed.

Descent. No descent required when you stay at home playing on your Xbox.

Bibliography. Mountain magazine 42 p. 12; AAJ 1976 p. 503-504.
