ScottNew altitudes

Scott

Voted 10/10

In case you are interested:

- Pichupichu group, a very eroded volcano with 7 summits of which the highest is at 5571m.

Latest altitude measurements have listed the highest of the seven summits of Pichu Pichu at 5665 meters.

- Ubinas group, the most active volcano of Peru with 3 peaks of which the southern one is the highest at 5632m

Altitude has been revised to 5672 meters. However this is an active volcano, so who knows, it might change.

Anyway, see the new revised altitudes on John Biggar's updated site:

Andes elevations

He always uses the latest available surveys so is a good source.

ScottChila Group

Scott

Voted 10/10

Chila group, formed by wide volcanic craters interfering with each other and broken through by other cone-shaped volcanoes, this group comprises Aseruta (-15.3144444, -72.2188889) 5447m (?),Cerro de Chila (-15.4063889, -72.1675) 5654m (?), and Casiri ridge of which Cerro Casiri itself (-15.4619444, -72.1713889) 5647m (?).

I believe that much of the peaks including Casiri and Cerani are actually made of granite rather than volcanoes. Chila may be the same as well, though those peaks are all surrounded by volcanic cones.

Even so I assume that since this page includes the Chila group I should attach Cerani?

Yes, please do so: the "area approach" could accomodate some assumptions in order to simplify the complexer geological logic !
Thank you,
