San Francisco 6030m

A peak near the Laguna Verde on the border of  Chile and Argentina, just east of Ojos del Salado. Normal approach to climb this peak would be from the city of Copiapo in Chile, or Fiambala in Argentina. SRTM data indicate that the summit is about 6030m high. This is probably the easiest 6000m peak in the Andes to climb, due to the fact it is so near the 4800m high Paso San Francisco.

San Francisco form the pass to the north... the path up the mountain can just be made out.
