El Toro 6168m
El Toro, also known as del Toro is a remote peak in the southern Puna de Atacama, near the towns of Rodeo in Argentina. It is an easy ascent technically but is very rarely climbed due to its remoteness. An Inca mummy was found half buried on the mountain in the 1960's and can be seen to this day in the provincial museum in San Juan, Argentina.
