Andes: The first mountaineering hut in the Andes was opened at Easter of this year with due formality by the Deutsche Ausflug Vereine of Santiago and Valpariso. The hut, called “Lo Valdes,” the construction of which was made possible by a subvention of RM. 5,000 from the Deutscher und Österreichischer Alpen Verein, is provided with a guardian and furnishes the first climbers’ refuge in the central Andes of Chile, if not in all of South America.
