Cordillera de la Viuda, 1989. Five members of our club in twelve days traversed over several passes, starting from the railroad station of Chicla and heading northwest towards the town of Canta. Along the way they made several first ascents: Cerro Nevería (5050 meters, 16,568 feet; northwest of Chicla) on August 19, 1989 and Cerro Azul (5100 meters, 16,733 feet) on August 24. The latter is in what the official map calls the Cordillera de Corte. The climbers were José Carbone, Samuel Gutiérrez, Pedro Noguchi, Oscar Paredes and Orlando Perales.
