Fernando Grajales (leader), Humberto Vasalla, Ulises Vitale, and Enrique Cardozo, Argentines, of the Club Andino Mendoza, made their base on the shores of Lake Solterahanca, set up three camps on the west wall of Yerupajá, and climbed on August 3 to the summit of Yerupajá South (21,326 feet), a first ascent. On the descent Vasalla froze his feet severely.
