Monte Pissis Trip Report (#6151)

  • Date submitted: January 14, 2004
  • Date(s) climbed: 27 December 1994

At 60 years, I made a solo ascent with a new route from Chile pioneered by Giancarlo Fiocco. I made the first reliable altitude determination using a GPS. The result was 6874 m with error of 50 m, after subtracting 20 m due to the glocal geoid correction. I also climbed Aconcagua with a friend in 1984 and did both summits of Ojos del Salado solo in 1991. Note that GPS errors are smaller now.
