Aguja Poincenot - Southwest face

14. El Sacrificio del Ratón

600m 6c C1

Dave Sharratt and Freddie Wilkinson (The New Hampshire Swamp Donkeys), 12/2006, with help from Peter Kamitses.

Description. It climbs a crack system to the left of Judgment Day. Unfortunately, the crack system, although alluring from afar is a bit gravelly, with plenty of scrappy climbing and groveling. Joins the Fonrouge-Rosasco and then the Whillans-Cochrane (900m altogether).

History. It was climbed alpine style over two days, summitting at 2PM on day two.

Approach. Polacos.

Descent. The first ascentionists descended via a combination of the Fonrouge-Rosasco and Southern Cross.
