There are some alternative...
There are some alternative routes to where the normal route separates from Mike Dorse Direct (MDD).
The dotted blue lines indicates that the route is not visible, but behind a ridge for ex.
The one to the right is the most common, easiest, but also the longest from Arenal Camp.
About a hundred vertical meters below where the red line starts, there are some good places for camping.
The red line is MDD and goes straight up the left arm of the glacier, along a line directly towards the summit ridge of Ojos del Salado. It's steep in the end and be sure to be acclimatized before attempting to do rock climbing over 6700m. The normal route follows a rocky ridge to where it flattens out, it is switch-backing a bit on the plateau and also on the broad face leading up to the summit block.

Does anyone know what is the name of the route that follows the wide ridge on the right hand side of the glaciers (the one that begins over the bend in the dotted line)?

I don't think that route has a name. When I spoke to Jonson Reynoso about the routes on the peak he didn't mention that alternative. Perhaps you were the first to climb that line.

SALUDOS. QUE TAN DIFICIL ES EN CUANTO AL ASPECTO TECNICO? SE LLEGA CAMINANDO A LA CUMBRE? O ALGUIEN CON MEDIANA EXPERIENCIA Y UN GUIA ADECUADO PUEDE ESCALARLO? GRACIAS INTERESANTE LA GRAFICA MOSTRADA

No es una escalada técnica en todos en el lado argentino. Básicamente, cualquiera puede caminar todo el camino hasta la cima por la ruta normal. Creo que se puede subir el Ojos del Salado, sin una guía. Es una zona muy aislada sin embargo, lo que es bueno no ir solo. Los chilenos tienen un acceso mucho mejor, refugios e incluso una carretera que sube a más de 5000 metros. Por ese lado es un poco técnico, al final sin embargo. Algunos luchando en la roca suelta.
