First Ascent NotesGlauco gave a detailed description but couldn't take photos as they've used the last of their battery for navigation. They pointed out the real summit is located far from the highest DEM point and this is the correct location of the summit (-33.137973 -69.613961). They built a 20cm cairn and left a plastic bag with a pencil and small summit report.
