Tocorpuri Group, 1990. Our expedition was composed of Austrian Theo Dowbenka and Germans Ludwig Albrecht, Ludwig Esenböck, Josef Hümmer, Josef Knott, Rolf Thorenz and me. We ascended by their normal routes Lican- cabur (5921 meters, 19,426 feet) and San Pablo (6092 meters, 19,987 feet) in northern Chile and Tupungato (6550 meters, 21,490 feet) in the central Chilean ranges. After Licancabur, we also made on December 28, 1990 the first modem ascent of the rocky summit of P 5183 (17,004 feet) in the Tocorpuri Group, southeast of the Tatío geysers. On the top we found a wooden stick, about a meter long.
