Cristal, Cacique and Mascarello, Upsala Glacier. In early 1995, Rolando Garibotti, Ramón Calvo and Diego Luro had hoped to cross the Glaciar Upsala to climb Murallón, but they found the crevasses so wide that they gave up trying to cross and had to content themselves with climbing three peaks on the east side of the glacier. These had been climbed some years ago by Jure Skvarca and Mario Serrano.
