South America, Argentine-Chilean Patagonia, Cerro Mano del Diablo, 1987

Cerro Mano del Diablo, 1987. On January 18, 1987, French climbers Bertrand Doligez and Jean-Louis Hourcadette made the first ascent of Cerro Mano del Diablo in the Balmaceda group in southern Patagonia. They approached from Puerto Natales in a coastguard ship to an unnamed fjord south of Fiordo Peel. This five-man expedition established Base Camp and two other camps. The climbing was mixed. They ascended from a col between Mignolo and Anulare.
