Ascent Trip ReportMy wife, Geri, and I had a few hours before our flight back to the States and I noticed that the highest point in Buenos Aires was only a few miles from the airport. Earlier on our trip I had missed summiting Aconcagua due to bad weather, but I did manage a successful location of the highest point in the providence of Entre Rios. Reaching the highest point in Buenos Aires would give me two providence high points in Argentina, although I admit there was no real climbing involved with either climb. The coordinates provided on this site took me to a city block completely covered by a huge building that looked abandoned, but it was actually the city's water distribution center. This made sense since it was sitting on the highest point in the entire city. It was not possible to reach the exact highest point because it was located behind a tall locked iron fence, so using county highpointing protocol, we walked around the entire building in order to claim the high point. Nothing special about bagging this high point, but there are some high points in the States, like Elbright Azimuth, that don't require any climbing also.
