Sierra Nevada 6140m
Cumbre del Laudo 6122m
A high peak on the border near Ojos del Salado. The first ascent was made by the American Robert Ayers and some others in December 2000 using the route description in the 1999 edition of our "Andes" guidebook - a world first as far as we know! The height used here is based on the latest SRTM data. Cumbre del Laudo is a subsidiary peak to the
Sierra Nevada from the south, the highest summit is at the left hand end of the long summit plateau, with Cumbre del Laudo on the centre right of the photo.
We can organise guided ascents of this peak. For details of how to climb it and neighbouring peaks in the southern Puna de Atacama and Agua Negra area please see our guidebook available in English, Spanish, Polish and French editions, direct from us or from all good bookshops and mountaineering shops.
