Free ascent of the east face of Fitz Roy «El Corazon»
 2/3/2011 

Another great  ascent by the Belgian specialists Nico Favresse and Sean Villanueva: the duo they managed the 2nd ascent and the onsight on the upper two-thirds of one of the most impressive route of Fitz Roy: El Corazon.  

Opened in February 1992 by the unforgettable Swiss Kaspar Ochsner and the Czech (naturalized Swiss) Michael Pitelka – both great explorers of the limestone massifs of the Bernese Alps - , the route is named after a characteristic  rock shaped like a heart, at the top. It 's long 1250 meters - 40 pitches - and the difficulty of 6c and A4. Before the Swiss , the itinerary had been attempted, among others, by a team composed of Janez Skok, Ines Bozic, Glantar Zlate with the italian Ivo Kafol that in 1987 "besieged" the mountain for two months.    Favresse and Villanueva started around 7 am on East Pillar in order to avoid the pitches of the lower section that was wet, then - following an evident snow ledge to the right - have come to El Corazon. On the route have found a lot of gear including a bundle of fixed ropes left by their predecessors;  climbing no stop and both free, reached the top at 11AM of the next day, overcoming difficulties up to 7b.
