16-Feb-2003 -- After we have reached this Confluence I know why nobody has been there before.

It is only 7.6 km away from a pretty nice rig road but it took us 3 hours, 1 tire and a night with a scorpion to get to the point and back. Almost invisible tracks in a huge field of volcanic rocks, the best environment to kill your tires. But everybody was happy after the success.
