Mulas Muertas 5921m
A very high volcano that is often climbed in one long day from the Laguna Verde base camp on Ojos del Salado. it makes a fine acclimatisation peak with great views of the route on Ojos. The height used here is from a handheld GPS reading taken in 2015. The often quoted height of 5897m is likely too low, digital elevation data also supports a height of 5910m+.
