Agua Negra Region, Central Andes. In January, Horacio Sánchez went to this important zone with many virgin peaks. He ascended solo a peak (ca. 5100-5200 m) between the Paso de Agua Negra (4779 m) and the Glaciar de Agua Negra, a little north of the summits ascended by our party some years ago (see AAJ 1993, p. 174, and AAJ 1994, pp. 203-204). It was the second ascent of the mountain, named Cerro Raquel by the first party in 1986. Cerro Raquel lies on the border between Argentina and Chile.
