Treasure chest?

If you don't know which of the piles of rocks is the true summmit, look for this silvery treasure chest. In it you'll find a log book and some other small things left by other climbers.

Money Boxes

Banco de Chile gives a team of climbers $1000 if they take one of these boxes to the summit of a Chilean 6000er. There are rules, like limiting how many peaks a person can do, no soloing etc. Many of the peaks in Chile have been done, but not all. Banco de Chile is owned by Andronico Luksic, who has summited Vinson, Everest etc.

Thanks for the info.

Re: 1000$!

Yes, USD$1,000. There must be at least 2 (or 3?) in a team. Not sure if foreigners can do it, but maybe if you teamed up with a Chilean ? I know a strong pair who took a box high up a peak not too far from Santiago but could not summit in very bad weather and ended up losing the box ! It was not a hard peak, so maybe that one has been done now.
