Thanks to Uwe Kraus for adding this peak.
Marmolejo is the most southern summit higher than 6000 meters all over the world. In spite of little technical difficulties you shouldn't underestimate him. Violent winds from the close Pacific Ocean have caused the failure of quite a few projects.
It is a middle-heavy climb of a volcano with a little risk of crevasses. You need a first-class condition and acclimatisation as well as a good nose for the correct route.
Thanks to Uwe Kraus for this description.
