1992-1993 Southern Summer Season in Patagonia. Because the climbing season comes more or less at the same time as the American Alpine Journal goes to press, only a small part of the material can be covered until a year later. However, we do try to publish whatever we can just after it has happened. In AAJ, 1993, we did have reports on the Punta Herron Attempt on page 185 and the ascent of the Escudo and the Torre Norte del Paine on page 197. The rest of the record for that season appears below.
