South America, Columbia, Volcano Purace

The Volcano Purace (15,420 feet) in Colombia was climbed last summer by W. Jenks Woolston of Chestnut Hill, Pa., who was on a collecting trip in that region. The climb was made from Purace village, about twenty or twenty-five miles from Popayan in the Cauca Valley and is reported to have been very easy having been accomplished without the use of any particular mountaineering equipment.
