Iker and Eneko Pou have made the first ascent of Bizirik on the North Face of Cashan (5716m) in Peru.

Just a few days after their first ascents on Urus Oeste, Iker and Eneko Pou have now forged a spectacular new mixed climb on the north face of Cashan, a 5716m peak in the nearby Rajucolta valley.

The Basque brothers set off early on 21 June from their bivy at 500 meters and required circa 8 hours to reach the summit, having breached difficulties up to M6 85° in the 980m line, and descended down the opposite side of the mountain before returning to base camp in a 13.5 hour round trip.

This is now the twelfth route opened by the Pou brothers in the Cordillera Blanca of the Andes, and the third this summer.
