Climb the very prominent NE ridge of Pico Ojeda (18,012 feet; 5,490 meters). The first ascent involved a bivi about 500 feet up at an obvious tower and then another atop the ridge and about 1,000 feet below the summit. The rock crux was laybacking up a right facing corner at roughly mid-height on the ridge. Crux ice was around some free-standing towers on the ridge below the rock crux.


Descend the SW Snowramp.
