Cerro San Juan, 1991. This high peak lies northwest of Cerro Alma Negra, in the Mercedario group. Silvia Tejada, Humberto Campodónico, Luis Gómez, Mauricio Manzi, Manuel Maurín, Iván Nobre and Fabián Olivieri from the city of San Juan placed camp in the upper valley of the Colorado River. On January 8, 1991, they headed for Alma Negra, but having mistaken the route, they climbed instead P 5850 (19,197 feet), a first ascent. They named the peak Cerro San Juan.
