South America, Chile, Nevado Anucara and Other Peaks, Northern Andes, 1993

Cerro Huiluco, Quimsa Cruz. Because of icy winds and snow during the “dry” Bolivian winter, traveling alone from mid June to early July, I was only able to make the second ascent of Chiar Huyo on July 2 and the first ascent of Cerro Huiluco on July 8. Chiar Huyo (5500 meters, 18,045 feet), north of Cerro Santa Rosa on the official military map, had a cairn built by mining surveyors. Huiluco (5200 meters, 17,061 feet) is the sharp, dark rock cone in the upper Atoroma valley, west of Cerro Yaipuri. I climbed the west face on good, steep rock and loose snow.
