Condoriri, Southeast ridge. A party sent by the Federación de Andinismo de Chile tackled the southeast ridge of Condoriri (5648 meters, 18,531 feet), a shapely peak in the central district of the Cordillera Real. From Base Camp at 14,000 feet in the Tuni valley, the group climbed to 16.000 and 17,200 feet to set up high camps, which proved to be very cold. On July 21, all expedition members climbed the east face and at 18.000 feet they connected the route to the narrow southeast ridge and reached the summit with bad weather and poor visibility. Participants were C. Gálvez, R. Lamilla, M. Puig, P. Rosende and C. Sepulveda. This route appears to be a second ascent, since the Italian Agnolotti expedition had climbed the route in 1967.
