The ascent of Tolima, 18,400 ft., in Colombia, was made on Dec. 10, 1926, by Hans Huber, of Bogatá, accompanied by two German and three Colombian friends. (Andina, Vol. VIII, No. 5, p. 122.) They reported no trace of the first ascent of Jan. 18, 1923, made by Kaspar Golay (Die Alpen, Vol. V. No. 9, p. 337), which is rather to be expected considering that the summit was a snow cap and that even at a depth of ten feet they had found no bottom to the snow.
