Volcan Lautaro, Attempt. On November 27, the Swiss Jurg Anderegg made an almost complete ascent of Volcan Lautaro, taking four days from Piedra del Fraile to the summit. He saw no volcanic activity, and found one section of the route dangerous due to exposure to seracs. He retreated from a foresummit without reaching the main summit, since there were several crevasses that appeared too dangerous for one man alone.
