Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, First Ascent. In January, twelve climbers from San Juan made attempts to ascend the southern peak of Cerro de la Ramada (c. 5900 meters, or about 19,350 feet). Due to route-finding problems, the attempts had to be abandoned, but as a consolation prize, A. Largacha, D. Muñoz and I made the first ascent of nearby Cerro Nuestra Señora de las Nieves (5100 meters, 16,733 feet).
