Nevado Palomares and Marmolejo Norte. The first ascent of Nevado Palomares (19,423 feet) was made by a joint expedition of Brazilians of the Club Alpinista Carioca and Argentines of the Club Andinista Mendoza on February 25. (No names are available.) Twelve hours later on the same day, the Chileans Roberto Roa, Antonio Amigo and Carlos Pereda made the second ascent. Neither group knew anything of the other. The Chileans traversed into the Argentine from Chile, making the second ascent of Marmolejo Norte (19,465 feet) on that same day.
