Route on El Muerto
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The route is quite obvious. Follow the right hand side of the glacier to avoid penitentes holes or small, small crevasses. In some places and depending on the snow condition you may be better off walking on the rocks. When you have passed the steepest section, you have to negotiate a snow field with potential crevasses. Head for the rocky ridge on your left and walk up along it to a small rocky summit. From here go left over a snow field to a plateau with many piles of rocks. The highest pile with a large silvery attachè case is the true summit.
