Cordillera Central. The Frenchman D. Eichenbugeno and Manuel Bazán and Raúl Riesco, both from Santiago, entered the Barros Negros group of rock peaks located north of the mining village of Pérez Caldera in December 1971. From a base camp at 11,000 feet, Manuél Bazán, alone, made the first ascents of P 4012 (13,160 feet) and of another summit of similar height, both located due west of Castro Lake.
