Pico Vértigo, Sierra Nevada de Mérida. A Venezuelan party led by T. Viscarret made in January the second ascent of Pico Vértigo (c. 16,000 feet), a sharp rock peak which local climbers call the “Petit Dru of Venezuela.” The first ascent had been made in 1962 by a joint British-Venezuelan group (A.A.J., 1963, 13:2, pp. 503-4).
