Cerro Matus or Titlis, 1993, Northern Patagonia. In February, 1993, Argentines Patricio Figueredo, Sebastián González Chiozza, Osvaldo Méndez and guide Darío Remorino climbed Cerro Matus (1860 meters, 6102 feet: also called Titlis), on the border with Chile, south of Cerro Cacho and west of Lago Espejo in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. They found a paper of Otto Meiling dated February 22, 1941, recording the first ascent. Since Remorino had been on the summit once before, this was probably the third ascent.
