Cerro La Paloma, Central Andes. La Paloma (4930 meters, 16,175 feet) has become perhaps the only Chilean mountain to have been ascended by all its possible angles. American Allen Steck and O. Espinoza, R. Gamboa and I, from Santiago, opened the last (and steepest) route up the peak by way of the southeast glacier, on March 1. La Paloma, an impressive sight from Santiago, was one of the first mountains to have had a recorded ascent in the country, in early 1912.
