Monte Parry. Chileans Aldo Boitano, Guillermo Mascaró, Maurico Rojas, Renzo Uccelli and José Vélez were taken by the navy icebreaker Piloto Pardo from Punta Arenas to a Chilean base on Deception Island and thence by military helicopter for a 15-day stay on Brabant Island. Bad weather prevented activity most of the time. After six days in a high camp, they set out for the summit of Monte Parry (2522 meters, 8274 feet), which they reached in the late afternoon of February 23. Some days later, the icebreaker collected the group.
