Mururata and Other Peaks. A truck from La Paz took me to Mina San Francisco at 4300 meters. From this mine I hiked up valley to place a camp south of the west glacier of Mururata (5775 meters, 18,947 feet). On June 4 I reached the summit of this peak, without ice axe or crampons, since the snow was hard and the route easy. Three days later I placed another camp at 4800 meters, next to the terminal moraine west of Chearoco and Chachacomani. On June 8 I climbed Chearoco (6127 meters, 20,109 feet), by the southwest ridge, and on June 9, climbed Chachacomani (6074 meters, 19,930 feet) via the west and then north ridges.
