South America, Argentina–Central Andes, Cerro Pabellón, Second Ascent

Cerro Pabellón, Second Ascent. As a final celebration of a climbing course given during February by the Club Andinista Mendoza, nine mountaineers including several women made the second ascent of Cerro Negro or Pabellón (6152 meters, 20,183 feet), which had been ascended in 1969 by an Argentinian-Japanese group (A.A.J., 1970, pages 174-5). The expedition reached the eastern base of the mountain on muleback and from the Refugio Real de la Cruz the ascent was accomplished with three high camps.
