Cerro Dos Picos
As its name says, Cerro Dos Picos is a bicuspidate secluded peak lying East to Cerro Hermoso in San Lorenzo Group. The two summits are separated by a saddle named Paso Hermoso; on the South side of the peak lies a cospicuous glacier on the South side. Due to its shape, Cerro Dos Picos is indicated like "Twin peak" in the report of the first and second summiters, both South Africans.
From Gobernador Gregores head towards NW and then follow a gravel road leading to Estancia El Rincon (870 mt). From here follow a trail towards North, entering the Rio Lacteo Valley and reaching Puesto San Lorenzo (980 mt). Carry on along the valley, getting to a good campsite situated where the forest ends, just in front of Cerro Hermoso and Cerro Dos Picos South sides.
