Thanks to ACA for adding this peak.

Easy summit frequently climbed as preparation for Vallecitos and/or Plata. If heavy snow has fallen down the mountain in winter you may need an ice axe and crampons during the early season (not likely but possible). Beware of large acarreos when there is no or few snow.
