Volcan del Viento and Medusa from the NW

Retreating from 19,300' Ojos high camp on 28 January after 2 snowy days there I snapped this shot. Medusa is the prominent peak at left (6120m) and Volcan del Viento is the peak at far right. The height comparison of the two from a vantage point nearly as high convinces me that V.d.V. is a legitimate 6000m peak. John Biggar says the old standard maps often marked elevations in craters rather than summits.
