Default Rate climate of imaginary city: Huenquelao, Argentina

First of all, as the title says, this city doesn´t exist, so don't look for it.
Nevertheless, the city is imaginary, but not the climate.

This invented city is located on a plateau at 1800 m (5909 ft) asl, at 36°40' S 69°20' W, in the province of Mendoza. It's very close to the Payún Matrú volcano, which has been inactive as far as human records are concerned.

Of course, as I said, the climate is real, but as there isn't any weather station over there AFAIK, I tried to estimate the numbers, based on the climates of places nearby, like Malargüe and others.

What do you think of this climate?

BTW, the name Huenquelao has been given by me. It seems to be the name of a Mapuche indigenous chief from the past.

This looks a lot like the climates in certain upland areas of the Sierra Nevada in California.

The temperature is, naturally, too cold for me. D+ though, for the sunshine and non-lasting winter.

B+. From the records, it looks like a place with wild temperature swings (reminds me of Denver with cooler summers), something I don't like very much. If it had a more stable climate, I would rate it an A.

Not terrible, with passable summers and decent sunshine, but cold winters.

D.

Not bad. Temperatures are comfortable year-round. Would prefer a bit more rain and less sun, but definitely liveable.
