|Good job on this one! I've been thinking about heading down there and doing it for a while, and no doubt your information will help a hell of a lot!|

|As you mentioned, the west (Chilean) peak is marginally higher.|
To end the controversy, in 2003 an Argentinian team climbed both towers simultaneously and made a topographic leveling between the two summits. It resulted that "the western tower is 54cm (+/-5cm) higher than the eastern one."
But the survey emphasises that "as this difference is lower than one meter (the minimum that justifies considering a summit higher than another one) it can be stated that both towers of Ojos del Salado have the same altitude. So, the real summit is both of them"... See report here (page 303)

|I read the report and in a way it's nice to know that: "So, the real summit is both of them", but it's still very annoying to know that I haven't been on the highest point of the world's highest volcano.|
I'll re-climb it next time I'm in the area.

|I believe this region was part of a BBC Series where volcanic gasses were collected from the peak and used to prove the effects of Plate Techtonics and the Longterm Carbon Cycle.|
In addition to being just awesome itself.

|Thanks for checking out the page.|
The whole area is awesome. One of my two favorite areas. The other one is the highlands of Asia of course :)
