Pico Bolivar c.5730m
Bolivar is possibly the highest peak in Colombia, but there is a lot of uncertainty if the neighbouring Pico Colon may be higher. Bolivar lies in the north of the country and is the highest peak in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Unfortunately safe and unrestricted access to these mountains is very hard to get at the moment, although an ANDES trip did get in and make an ascent of Pico Colon in December 2015.
