South America, Argentine-Chilean Patagonia, San Lorenzo

San Lorenzo. On December 10,1986 my husband Gino Buscaini, Argentine Cristina Agued and I reached the summit of San Lorenzo by the easy route of the first ascent made by Padre De Agostini. We believe that ours was the fifth ascent. San Lorenzo was also climbed by the Italian Casimiro Ferrari and three others on January 18, 1987 by the east ridge, previously climbed by South Africans. They found UIAA difficulties of V to V + on the upper rock buttress. This year’s weather was typically “Patagonian,” which made us retreat from a number of our objectives.
