We observed the field of GRB 170604A (Page, et al., GCN 21191) with the
Reionization and Transients Infrared Camera (RATIR; www.ratir.org) on the
1.5m Harold Johnson Telescope at the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional on
Sierra San Pedro M��rtir from 2017/06 5.39 to 2017/06 5.45 UTC (14.19 to
15.70 hours after the BAT trigger), obtaining a total of 0.84 hours
exposure in the r and i bands and 0.42 hours exposure in the Z and Y bands.

For a source within the Swift-XRT error circle (Page, et al., GCN 21196),
in comparison with the USNO-B1 and 2MASS catalogs, we obtain the following
detections:

  r = 20.42 +/- 0.06
  i = 20.65 +/- 0.07
  Z = 20.45 +/- 0.13
  Y = 20.40 +/- 0.30

These magnitudes are in the AB system and are not corrected for Galactic
extinction in the direction of the GRB.

We thank the staff of the Observatorio Astron��mico Nacional in San Pedro
M��rtir.
