Chimborazo. On March 3 David P. Johnston and Peter H. Robinson climbed all the way from the refuge at 16,000 feet over "Punta Veintemil” and across the deep soft snow to "Punta Whymper” (20,563 feet), the farthest point from the center of the earth. Meanwhile I had to remain in the refuge sick with an infection from sunburned lips.
