Northern Patagonian Icefield Traverse and Various Ascents. Between January 4 and January 27 our expedition, composed of seven members, visited the Northern Patagonian Icefield. We were Claudio Seeback, Norbert Seeback, Christian Buracchio, Christian Oberli, Michael Cantzler, Ian Phillippi and Sven Bruchfeld, all Chileans. We traversed the icefield from Leones Lake to San Rafael Lake. We ascended several peaks including Cerro Tronco (2300 meters), Cerro Cristal (2600 meters), Cerro Mocho (2500 meters), Cerro Iglar and Pico Norte (1600 meters).
